World AIDS Day is the day where, all over the globe, we remember those we’ve lost to AIDS. We also celebrate the progress made in fighting the epidemic. There is still no cure for AIDS, but HIV can be managed by prevention and early treatment.

One of the things that make HIV so difficult to control is that people are afraid to get tested. This means many people are spreading the virus without knowing it. Sure, it is scary to take that test. But sometimes courage is more important than hiding away.

People are scared to get tested because:

HIV is not a death sentence if you get tested and treat it. With a healthy lifestyle and ARVs (medication for HIV) you can live a long life. When you feel ready, talk to someone you trust who can give you support like a family member, friend, counsellor, doctor or traditional healer.
