Why is HIV Testing Necessary?

According to WHO, people who are between the ages of 13 and 64 years old should be screened for HIV at least once as part of their routine healthcare. However, repeated testing is suggested for people who are at a higher risk of getting the infection because of their behaviors like having sex without condoms, injecting drugs through shared needles, or having sex with multiple partners.

For HIV-positive people, there are several FDA-approved medicines that can be helpful for them to keep the virus under control, but these medicines can’t cure HIV. Such medicines are helpful for people to live long and healthy lives and reducing the chances of spreading the virus. For HIV-negative people, there are several FDA-approved PrEP drugs that can be helpful to provide protection against infection. HIV medicines can also cause side effects. Therefore, it is essential to consult with a doctor before taking a new medicine.
