NATIONAL HIV TESTING WEEK

National HIV Testing Week

National HIV Testing Week is a major campaign to promote regular testing among the most affected population groups and to reduce the rates of undiagnosed people and those diagnosed late.  This year, National HIV Testing Week starts on Saturday 17 November 2018.

 

MOST AFFECTED POPULATIONS

Gay and bisexual men, men who have sex with men and Black African men and women are the populations most affected by HIV in the UK.

 

TESTING

Taking an HIV test is good for all of us.  If you are HIV positive you can get treatment and avoid passing on HIV to others.  If your test is negative, you end any worries or doubt.

LGBT Foundation is offering additional free and confidential testing times and localities throughout Greater Manchester during National Testing Week and also during European Testing Week up to 3rd December.

LGBT Foundation offers HIV tests to all LGBT people.  See a list of times and venues here.
