Those at risk of HIV urged to take test

Leamington Editorial 30th Dec, 2016   0

PEOPLE at risk from HIV are being encouraged to have a simple test.

The National Aids Trust found nearly 90,000 people, including 315 children aged under 15, received HIV specialist care in 2015.

But nearly 20 per cent of the estimated 104,000 people living with HIV in the UK are undiagnosed. People can order a free HIV sampling kit – a simple finger-prick blood test or get a test from a Warwickshire service.
