WHY GET TESTED?

While HIV can be deadly if left untreated, a person living with HIV can live a long and healthy life with ongoing treatment. Also, with treatment, the level of virus can drop to undetectable levels, making it untransmittable to partners.  Knowing your status keeps you healthy, and can stop HIV in it’s tracks.

WHAT IF I TEST POSITIVE?

Get into treatment! HIV is treatable, often with only one pill a day!  But treatment is key to remaining healthy and getting to “Undetectable” where the virus can’t be transmitted to your partner(s).  The only way to know for sure is to get tested! Do it!
