The HIV test

To find out if you have an HIV infection you must take an HIV test. This test can tell you if your body has made antibodies to fight HIV. A positive test shows that these antibodies are present and this means you have been infected with HIV.

You can only be tested if you agree to it. Nobody can test you for HIV without your consent. (Please read the rules about ‘Informed Consent’)

Getting tested for HIV is a smart thing to do. Yet many people refuse to get tested. They find the idea of getting tested so frightening they just don't want to do it, even though they will often continue to be stressed and worried about whether they're infected. Others think of testing as unnecessary because they want to believe that HIV is something that won't concern them.
