Knowing your HIV status is Self-Care. Knowing your status is the first step toward effective HIV prevention and taking care of yourself. People living with HIV who take antiretroviral medication as prescribed and achieve and maintain an undetectable viral load cannot transmit HIV to their sexual partners. People without HIV should talk to a health care provider to determine appropriate prevention strategies, which might include taking PrEP, using condoms and/or getting retested regularly.

Observe NHTD with us! Please visit:  Take Care of yourself. Get tested. Get PrEP. Know your status.
