Understanding HIV and AIDS:
A Guidebook to HIV and AIDS Prevention



“While running a clinic that is part of the MOH Anonymous HIV Screening Program,
it is inevitable that I end up conducting a fair bit of HIV screening.
In the course of my work 
I have noticed
the rising rates of people contracting HIV.

That’s is why my we decided to publish this eBook to help
the community at large to understand more about
the importance of HIV screening and HIV treatment.

With more awareness people can take precautionary measures to
help prevent themselves from being infected with HIV.

It is very important for people to know their HIV status,
as with early detection patients can seek early treatment.
 And, with treatments
patients still can have a normal, healthy and productive life.”

    Hi, my english is very bad, so I hope you understand me… I tested negative for HIV at 4 months since my last exposure and the first one, but i’m still very afraid… the method was “ECLIA” 4th Generation. It is accurate a result by this method in Mexico? or I have to wait till 6 months or in worse case scenario: 1 year? I also tested for hepatitis a,b & c all negatives at 3 months one week and I also have a VDRL negative at 4 months 1 week. Please answer me, thanks for your attention.

    • Your test results are conclusive. In my opinion, you do not need further testing. However if you are concerned, consult your doctor who did the test for you.
