Testing for HIV


Some young people may need to know about testing for HIV/AIDS.


Your teacher will help you understand the information below and answer any questions you may wish to ask.

Marie is anxious that she may have HIV from having sex with three partners. She thinks one of her partners might have HIV. She finally got up enough nerve to go to the health centre in her community. She tells the doctor about her situation and asks these questions.

Dr. Matago has worked with people living with AIDS for 7 years. He helps with testing and talks to people who have been tested. He answers Marie’s questions in a kind, understanding way.
