HIV Testing Week 1st - 7th Feb 2021

The sooner you find out whether you have HIV, the better it is for your health. If you have HIV for a long time without knowing, it can damage your body and even shorten your life. Test negative and you end any worries or doubt.

You can ask for a HIV test at BHWC or there are various other options for getting tested for HIV including testing at your local sexual health clinic or local HIV organisation. You can also test at home using either a postal test or a self test.
