Getting tested for HIV is an important part of your lifestyle. There is zero stigma and zero discrimination in getting tested for HIV. It means that you are serious about taking care of yourself and about having responsible sex.
There isn’t much of a difference between healthy people living with HIV and healthy people living without HIV, and if you’re someone who was born with HIV then this is something you might know very well.
Making the decision to disclose your HIV status to someone, even someone close to you, can be scary. Just know that you don’t have to be afraid choma. You have the right not to be stigmatised or discriminated.
