This publication provides readers with vital information and statistics on the HIV epidemic. For people who may have been exposed to HIV, knowledge is critical to making informed decisions about their future. An HIV test is a serious event with potentially serious outcomes. But no matter the result, the test provides vital information. A negative result is an opportunity to take deliberate steps to prevent future acquisition through prevention methods tailored to that individual's risks. A positive test result - and a confirmatory diagnosis -is never welcome news, but for people living with HIV, it is a necessary first step towards a long and healthy life.
