Symptoms of HIV may not appear for many years; therefore the only way to find out if one has HIV is to have an HIV test.
Any individual who thinks he could have an HIV should get testd.
HIV Lab Test Kit is easy to use at home. Blood Sample is collected via a simple finger prick method and sent to our partner lab for testing, in a self-addressed envelope provided inside the kit.
TESTD provides 5th generation HIV testing, which is the latest technology available. The test seeks to detect both antigens and antibodies. The test can detect HIV antigens (p24) as early as 10 days after exposure but it should be followed up with a 28 day HIV Duo test.
Individual between the ages of 13 to 64 years must go for HIV testing as per the guidelines of Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP)
Apart from this certain groups of people are at high risk hence advised to have regular tests:
- Men who have sex with men should have an HIV test once a year or every three months if they are having unprotected sex with casual or new partners.
- Black African men and women should have an HIV test and a regular STI screen, if they are having unprotected sex with casual or new partners.
