Get Tested for HIV


The Benefits

You could have HIV and still feel healthy. The only way to know for sure if you have HIV or not is to get tested.

Live Longer With HIV

If you find out you have HIV, you can take drugs to slow down the virus. HIV medicines are giving people healthier futures and new strength. While there's no cure for HIV, the treatments today allow you to live longer. The sooner you start treatment, the better.

Protect Yourself and Others

If you are HIV-positive, you also can take steps to protect your partner(s) so that you don’t pass the virus on to others. If you are pregnant, or thinking about getting pregnant, you can help prevent passing HIV to your baby. External Link
