National HIV Testing Week (NHTW) is an annual campaign which seeks to promote regular testing among key populations. It aims to reduce the numbers of undiagnosed people and those diagnosed late.
Serena Cavanagh, Health Promotion Lead for Merseyside’s HIV prevention has been working for Sahir House for nearly 20 years and have seen the many changing faces of HIV on Merseyside. The campaign is about normalising having a HIV test and dispelling the myths, and is encouraging people to ‘Know their HIV status’ and be open about talking about this whether HIV positive, negative or untested.
