HIV / STD Testing

Whether you’re looking for the most effective treatment plan or the best prevention strategy, HIV and STD testing is the right way to start. Here’s all you need to know:

Why is HIV testing important?

It can help improve
health
of people
who have HIV
and don’t know it
Testing can help
Prevent Infections:
1.

There are a number of reasons why HIV testing is so essential. People who discover they are HIV-positive can get HIV treatment known as antiretroviral therapy (ART) and stay healthy. But without HIV treatment, people who don’t know they have HIV may be risking their health and the health of others.

2.

The CDC estimates that about 1 in 7 Americans with HIV don’t know they have it. And 30% of new HIV infections are transmitted by people living with undiagnosed HIV.

3.

An HIV-positive person taking meds can often have an undetectable viral load—meaning the virus is not detectable in their bloodstream. And that means that the possiblility of that person infecting an HIV-negative person is extremely low.
