Why am I so scared of HIV?

AVERT



Published on Nov 23, 2015

Did you know? One of the biggest reasons why people don't test for HIV is because they're scared. They're scared about HIV, taking a test, what it means to be positive, and what other people will think. It's a completely natural reaction to have, but it doesn't have to be this way.

Remember to keep the facts about what it means to live with HIV at the front of your mind. Don't let fear affect your health.

Unfortunately, hearing other people's negative attitudes about HIV often puts people off getting tested. People may have these negative views simply because they don't understand the facts about HIV. If you know the facts, you'll feel more confident about ignoring or challenging people who talk negatively about HIV.

Remember, HIV is treatable. But it's only treatable if you're brave enough to get tested. If you find out you're negative, continue to focus on staying negative. If you're positive, that's ok too - you've done the right thing by testing and now you can take treatment to stay healthy. The worst thing is not knowing.

This World AIDS Day 2015 we want you to forget what other people think, your health is more important. You're the only one who can stand up for your health and test for HIV.
