As with previous #oktobertest campaigns, the aim is to continue the work of raising awareness about HIV, testing and treatment to ensure we beat HIV and end the epidemic by 2030.
During the COVID-19 lockdown this Spring, the #BreakTheChain campaign showed the impact of how self-testing is part of the solution to stop the spread of HIV.
Creating awareness that regular testing is our opportunity to break the chain is key, because if everyone tests, together we can beat HIV. There’s no excuses, together we can end the stigma, put ourselves in control and make sure HIV testing becomes part of everyone's regular STI check-ups.
Our goal, as always, is for the entire nation to #TakeControl and #KnowYourStatus this October. With a BioSURE HIV Self Test you can test where you want, when you want and with who you want.
HIV Self Testing is now more necessary than ever. With the decline in the numbers of STI/GUM clinics and limited access to these clinics due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have seen a surge in the number of users of our BioSURE HIV Self Test. It's more important than ever that people can choose to get their own test delivered to their home or other location, whenever they choose and test on their own terms. The motivation for choosing to discreetly, simply and reliably self-test has never been stronger.
No HIV test is easier, the BioSURE HIV Self Test Kit is quite simply just a prick, suck, poke and gives you your own, easy to read and accurate result in just 15 minutes.
