1 in 4 people with HIV don’t know they have it. It is estimated that currently only 75% of people with HIV know their status.

HIV continues to be a major global public health issue, having claimed more than 35 million lives so far.

There were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017.

HIV infection is often diagnosed through rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs), which detect the presence or absence of HIV antibodies.

There is no cure for HIV infection. However, effective antiretroviral (ARV) drugs can control the virus and help prevent transmission so that people with HIV, and those at substantial risk, can enjoy healthy, long and productive lives.

Know your risks - get tested.
