Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988. As a result, three in four people living with HIV know their status. We still have miles to go, as the latest UNAIDS report shows.
HIV testing is essential for expanding treatment and ensuring that all people living with HIV can lead healthy and productive lives. It is also crucial to achieving the 90–90–90 targets and empowering people to make choices about HIV prevention so they can protect themselves and their loved ones.
Unfortunately, their are many barriers to HIV testing. Stigma and discrimination are still major deterrents. Access to confidential HIV testing is still an issue of concern which results in many people only get tested after becoming ill and symptomatic.
