Service Description

What is HIV? HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. It is the virus responsible for the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, otherwise known as AIDS. What makes this virus special is that our body cannot attack it properly. Even with the appropriate treatment, an infected person can not get rid of HIV. It is a virus for life. If infected, you need to follow an ART (antiretroviral therapy) treatment to manage the disease and improve the quality of your life. When HIV enters the body, it attacks the immune system. The body’s immune system is in charge of fighting off infections. If HIV is not treated, the virus would invade our immune system and reduce the number of white blood cells (CD4 cells). Day after day, it will keep invading the body and destroying cells, making our body unable to defend itself anymore against anything. That’s when opportunistic illnesses start appearing. The latest stage of HIV is the AIDS that is killing more than 15,000 people in the USA, yearly. AIDS is a very severe illness during which the body gets conquered by too many infections. What your HIV test results mean? If your test results were negative for HIV antigen and HIV antibody; then, you are not infected with HIV. This means that at the time of the test, you were not infected. But if you have engaged in risky behaviors post-test; they will not be reflected in the results. Keep in mind that if you tested negative for HIV, this does not mean that your partner is also not infected. If your test results are positive for the screening test; then, you are infected with HIV. According to the CDC, if you tested positive for HIV, you need to get retested. In the follow-up test turned up positive again; then, you have the HIV. In that case, it is essential to seek medical care as early as possible to begin the HIV treatment. Taking the right medications, using condoms regularly, and getting tested routinely for HIV or any other STD’s can lower your risks of transmitting the infection. Also, talking openly with your sexual partner about your positive diagnosis is essential.
