Yorkshire HIV Testing Week

By 18th November 2021 No Comments

We are so excited to announce that the first ever Yorkshire HIV Testing Week will take place 22nd-27th November 2021!

It’s 40 years since the first cases of HIV were reported. Since then, we have seen huge developments in the testing and treatment of HIV.  A person on effective treatment can live as long as someone who doesn’t have HIV, and treatment suppresses the virus to such a degree that it cannot be detected or transmitted. In other words: Undetectable equals Untransmissible.

It’s never been easier or quicker to get an HIV test! Using a rapid point of care test, we take a small drop of blood from a finger prick and it takes 20 minutes for you to get your results.

We’re holding loads of HIV testing drop-in sessions across Hull over the week so it’s the perfect time to get to know your status! Let’s #GetTestedYorkshire together.
