HIV Self-test Support Service
Shall we Talk ? HIV Testing Support Service is an affordable and private counselling service along with our self-test kits.
This is a service for people who cannot do an HIV test at the testing centre and would like to do their own test with some extra help.
You may pick wherever you find comfortable to conduct the test. Simply reach out to our qualified counsellors and we would walk you through the whole self-testing process via phone or online call. We would help you get prepared both physically and mentally for the test and answer every question and doubt you might have.
Why is HIV self-testing needed?
The World Health Organisation recommends HIV self-testing as one option to make testing more accessible. Self-testing can be especially useful for people who do not want to go to a clinic or centre for testing and prefer the convenience and privacy to do it by themselves.
Who needs HIV self-testing??
Anyone who is worried about being exposed to the risk of HIV infection (unprotected vaginal, anal, oral sex or blood contact) with interest to know their HIV status can do self-testing.
When can I use HIV self-testing?
You can do self-testing at any time. However, you need to know that it may take time for an HIV infection to become detectable in the body. In most of the cases, this may take around 90 days after the infection for the test to detect it.
