When it comes to knowing your HIV status, sooner is better.

Getting tested is the most important thing you can do for yourself and for others in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Knowing your status empowers you to make informed decisions. People are more likely to use caution if they know they can spread the virus. If you are negative, you can learn how to stay negative. If you are positive, you can seek treatment to live a long and healthy life.

4 Ways to Prevent HIV

  1. Don’t Have Sex: The only sure way to avoid contracting HIV sexually is to avoid sex.
  2. Stay with One Partner: If you and your partner are both HIV negative, being faithful in your monogamous relationship eliminates your risk for HIV infection.
  3. Use Latex Condoms: If you do have sex, always use latex condoms with your partner, especially if you do not know your partner’s HIV status.
  4. Don’t Share Needles and Syringes: HIV can be spread by sharing needles and syringes. If you are using drugs, enroll in a treatment program. If you cannot stop drugs, do not share needles and syringes.
