      We believe HIV testing should be available for people in a way that means they are accessible, discreet and the results get to you quickly.  If you feel you may have been exposed to a potential risk of infection, or you feel you should check your status for peace of mind then we can help you get access to HIV testing kits.

      People can get anxious when they think they have exposed themselves to HIV.  It is common for people to read symptoms of HIV online and over- analyse anything similar they have experienced during this time. Not everyone experiences symptoms and the only way you can be sure of your status is to take a test within the advised window period.

      HIV Testing Week

      HIV Testing Week is a crucial event in our calendar, allowing us to raise awareness about the importance of regular testing, reduce stigma, and encourage individuals to take control of their sexual health. This year's campaign is particularly significant as we strive to reach even more people and create a lasting impact. Things we want you to know about HIV.
