WORLD AIDS DAY
According to the CDC, people between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. HIV testing allows you to know for sure whether you have the virus. It enables you to act and seek medical help if you are HIV-positive or continue taking steps to avoid getting the deadly virus.
How do you know if you have HIV or AIDS?
Testing is the best way to determine whether you have HIV, but symptoms can occur before HIV shows up on a test. Some experience flu-like symptoms – including fever, chills, rash, night sweats, muscle aches, sore throat, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes or mouth ulcers – within two weeks of infection.
