To stop the spread of HIV, Right to Care encourages everyone to test for HIV. If you don’t know whether you are HIV positive or negative, you risk spreading HIV to others if you are HIV positive. You also risk developing complications from the disease because you are not on treatment.
Speak to the healthcare worker at your nearest healthcare facility about HIV testing. It is your right to be tested, to be well cared for and to be treated with dignity. Healthcare workers have been trained not to judge you. Do not let fear stop you from looking after your health. Take responsibility for your own health and the health of your sexual partner/s.
