“KNOW YOUR STATUS!”
1. A negative result means that no HIV antibodies are detected. Antibodies are a response of your body to a virus or infections. This will find any exposure which happened six weeks prior to the test or before that (window period). A non reactive test means a person is HIV negative.
2. if you think you are exposed to any form of risk, you are recommended to do HIV testing every three months or minimum twice a year.
3. How to stay negative? Use condom and water-based lubricant consistently. Another way is by taking Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).
4. Find out more about the cost and the availability of PrEP here (insert Mypreplocator)
