An HIV diagnosis doesn’t have to stop you from living a long and healthy life. With the proper treatment and care, you can live as long as someone who doesn’t have HIV.
If you are at a higher risk of contracting the virus, combining it with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) decreases your chances even more
Testing is easy and it’s a short wait to get your results. A rapid HIV Screening Test is done by a slight prick on your finger, and the results are ready in 15 minutes.
The HIV medication is called Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) and must be taken on a daily basis. In most cases, it’s as simple as one pill per day. Treatment should be started immediately; delaying it will allow the virus to continue harming your immune system.
