Last week for HIV Testing Week, I took a test to pledge my support to break the stigma that surrounds HIV. 

It’s important to be aware that if you receive a positive HIV test result, you can receive free treatment. However, it can be easy to overlook the symptoms. An estimated 4,500 individuals in the UK are living with undiagnosed HIV, which underscores the importance of getting tested. 

Getting tested is convenient. If you’re unable to visit a sexual health clinic, you can request a free self-testing kit by mail by simply clicking the link below. It took me just 20 minutes to complete the test.
