National HIV Testing Week, an initiative run by HIV Prevention England, runs from 1-7 February 2021.

Usually, the campaign takes place in November, but the 2020 HIV Testing Week was moved to February 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, due to Covid-19 NHTW 2021 will have a strong focus on promoting HIV testing at home.

Testing kits

Testing kits are available from to people aged 16+ living in Shropshire.

The kits can test for HIV, as well as other STIs like chlamydia gonorrhoea and syphilis. The test for HIV and syphilis is a self-taken fingerprick blood sample, and either a urine sample or vaginal swab for chlamydia or gonorrhoea.
