HIV home test kit

Post by bluesheart

HIV home test kit

any health problems then do come on board with us.

he first legally approved HIV self-test kit that allows people to get a result in 15 minutes at home has gone on sale in England, Scotland and Wales.

Unlike other kits, these tests do not need to be sent off to a lab to get the results.
It works by detecting antibodies on a small drop of blood, which are often only detectable three months after the infection is caught.

Experts warn that any positive tests must be reconfirmed at clinics.
Charities hope it will reduce some of the 26,000 people estimated to have undiagnosed HIV in the UK.
