The purpose of the week is to promote regular testing among the most affected population groups and to reduce the rates of undiagnosed people and those diagnosed late.

In the UK, the combination prevention approach to HIV means we are witnessing a substantial decline in HIV diagnoses for the first time.

However, the work must not stop here. There was a small increase in late diagnoses between 2015 (39%) and 2016 (42%), which means testing is still as important as ever.

We would love to hear from our community partners who can help support this important national campaign by offering testing opportunities through their venues to service users, promote the campaign through your social media and host workshops delivered by BHA on HIV awareness.
