HIV Testing

Getting tested

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.
HIV can be treated, and millions of people are living positively with HIV. If you are HIV positive, and you don’t know it, you will spread it to your sexual partner, and you will both get sick if you don’t test and get onto treatment. This is why we want you to get tested for HIV.
You can be tested at any public healthcare hospital or clinic. Testing takes place in a confidential environment, and you will be counselled before and after your test/s.
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.

In many areas, mobile screening and testing for HIV and other diseases takes place to make it easy for people to get tested for HIV and screened for other health issues.

Right to Care has mobile testing teams in:


the Cape Winelands

the Ehlanzeni district in Mpumalanga

the Thabo Mofutsanyana district in the Free State
