Why should you get an HIV test?
Everyone has an HIV status. Getting tested gives you more control of your health and allows you to protect yourself and your partners.
Who should get tested?
It’s recommended that you get tested if you currently or have ever:
- had sex with someone without a condom
- had a sexually transmitted disease (STD)
- shared needles or works to inject drugs
- shared needles for a piercing or tattoo
- if you are pregnant (HIV positive women can pass HIV to their babies), or
- confirmatory testing available for those who test preliminary positive or HIV-positive individuals who need proof of HIV status for service and/or healthcare access.
