There is no functional cure for HIV or AIDS, meaning that there is not currently a procedure or medication which has been
scientifically proven to eliminate the virus from a person's body or reverse the damage to the immune system.
There have however been many advances in HIV treatments and therapies in recent years, and these have dramatically improved
the quality of life of people with HIV. More people then ever with the virus are able to live a long and healthy life.
If you are diagnosed with HIV, you will take regular blood tests to monitor the progress of the HIV infection before
starting treatment. This involves monitoring the amount of virus in your blood (a 'viral load' test) and the effect that the
infection is having on your immune system.
If you test positive via freetest.me, you will be contacted by your local screening and given specialist care in your local area.
