KNOW YOUR STATUS. GET TESTED. www.testingpeel.phan.ca
WHY GET TESTED? 6 Reasons
1. Getting tested takes away the â€œuncertaintiesâ€? about second guessing your status. 2. The only way to know whether you are infected with HIV is to have an HIV test. 3. Regardless of the result, testing tends to increase your commitment to overall good health habits. 4. If you find out that you are infected with HIV, you and your healthcare providers can better plan early treatment and intervention to reduce the number of virus in your blood. 5. Getting tested provides a basis for you to protect your partner(s) from HIV infection. 6. By knowing your status, you can find out whether or not you can infect others, and what precautions you might take to prevent transmission to other people.
