National HIV Testing Week

Published on Tue 13th November 2018 Community News

HIV facts HIV is a virus which attacks the immune system and weakens the body’s ability to fight diseases. It’s estimated over 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK and over 4,000 people are diagnosed every year. Of these, 12 per cent are undiagnosed and do not know about their HIV infection HIV treatment lowers the amount of virus in the blood to undetectable levels which stops it from damaging the immune system, and means the virus cannot be passed on to other people There is still a great deal of stigma about HIV. Stigma is damaging as it prevents people from getting tested, from accessing treatment and from living a happy and healthy life The most common way HIV is transmitted is through sex without a condom. You cannot get HIV through casual or day-to-day contact, or kissing, spitting or sharing a cup, plate or toilet seat.
