Why Testing Matters?

Research reveals that if HIV remains undiagnosed and untreated, HIV can progress into a more chronic and life-threatening health condition called AIDS or cause disability. HIV is typically spread by an individual’s body’s exposure to fluids or tissue from an infected partner. Sexual contact and injection drug use (IDU) are two of the leading risk factors in spreading the infection in PA.

For your information, HIV infections humans and causes severe damage to the body by taking over immune system cells. Our immune system is responsible for fighting off bacteria, germs, and diseases.

Though no cure or vaccine is yet available to treat HIV, it is still a treatable condition, and infected individuals can live a normal life. Highly Active Antiretroviral Treatments/HAART has been available since the mid-1990s and is very effective in slowing the disease progression into AIDS or preventing it altogether. However, it all depends upon the timely diagnosis. Therefore, all sexually active individuals must make HIV testing a mandatory part of their routine health checkups.
