HIV is a viral infection passed on through the exchange of bodily fluids e.g. unprotected sex, sharing of needles or mother to baby. The virus attacks cells of the immune system leaving a person with compromised ability to defend against infections in the future. Over time, HIV may develop into Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) as a person develops several opportunistic infections. It is estimated that 1 in 3 people living with HIV are unaware, so, if you think you may be at risk, it may be a good idea to come and get tested.
At Midland Health, our experienced GP will put you at ease and happily answer any questions you may have about HIV, AIDS and possible risk factors associated. We offer 2 types of tests, an instant test which a result can be made available to you in less than 20 minutes at the clinic or a blood sample which we send of for testing. Testing involves taking a routine blood sample which is sent to the lab and returned within 1 day. The results are shared with you via your chosen method of communication and will always been made discrete and kept confidential.
A positive result can have a significant impact on a person’s life, but here at Midland Health, we will help you every step of the way. Discuss treatment options with your GP, access medications and learn about support groups where you can meet others in the same position.
