Did You Know?

  • Getting HIV tested can give you some important lifesaving information and can help keep you—and others—safe.
  • Amongst young people, HIV is majorly  spread through unprotected sex and drug-injecting behaviors , so people who engage in these behaviors should get tested more often.
  • Getting tested is the only way to know your HIV status. If you are HIV-positive, you can start getting treated, which can improve your health, prolong your life, and greatly lower your chance of spreading HIV to others.
  • You can arm yourself with basic information about STDs: How are these diseases spread? How can you protect yourself? What are the treatment options?

Let’s remind our young people, community, and country leaders about the importance of getting tested and having access to quality prevention, treatment, and care services. The online engagement  will have conversations as simple as possible for you to understand the importance of know your HIV status thus the hashtag #iknowKati (I Know Now). Not Sure Why You Need The Test? Join the conversation using the hashtag #iknowKati
