If you know your HIV status, you can look after yourself and other people better. If you have received a positive result on a HIV test, you can start treatment to stop you from getting ill or passing on HIV.
When should I be tested for HIV?
Generally, people who are sexually active should get a HIV test every 12 months, but this will be more often (every 3 months) if you are having sex with multiple people. You should also be tested when you have a new sexual partner, or if you think you have been exposed to HIV.
You can get free postal tests for self tests. Postal tests involve you taking a small sample of blood yourself at home, and post it to a lab to be tested.
You can collect a free self-sampling kit at any of our outreach stalls across Liverpool.
