Answer: GET TESTED, my friend! If you think you might have HIV, the best thing to do is get tested to know for sure. While it can be scary, knowing your status - whether it is positive or negative - is the first step to being healthy. The earlier you know your status, the better too.
The testing centre will also provide counselling about how to stay negative or what to do if you are positive.
Here are the places close to you that offer testing:
- All Government health centres, clinics and hospitals such as the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, the Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital and Chilenge Hospital.
- The University of Zambia clinic
- Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ)
- The Adult Centre for Infectious Disease Centre (AIDC) Centre of Excellence
