You can stop HIV
We can stop HIV, but it takes each of us to make it happen.
It Starts With Me is a national campaign which brings together real people and their stories to stop HIV.
Here’s the plan:
Test – Treat – Protect – Take Action
It’s good for you as an individual and it will benefit all of us.
Testing is good for you. The sooner you find out you have HIV, the better it is for your health. If you have HIV for a long time without knowing, it can damage your body and even shorten your life. Test negative and you end any worries or doubt.
Testing is good for all of us. Someone taking medication and with an undetectable viral load* cannot pass on HIV. But most people get HIV from someone who doesn’t realise they have it. If more people test and get the medication they need we could dramatically cut the numbers who get HIV in the future.
