Early diagnosis of HIV is critical in order to start treatment and live a long and healthy life with HIV. Everyone aged 13 -64 should be tested for HIV at least once, and if you are sexually active or share syringes or other injection equipment you should be tested yearly. All pregnant people should be tested for HIV because treatment is available that substantially reduces the risk of Perinatal (Mother-to-Child) Transmission of HIV.
