UK efforts to extend rapid HIV testing
This article was originally published in Clinica
The UK HIV and sexual health charity, the Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), in partnership with the Heart of Birmingham NHS Trust, has extended access to rapid HIV testing in the country's second-largest city, with the opening of a second one-hour walk-in service. This is now available at two central Birmingham sites, on different days, for around three hours. The aim of the initiative is to help capture the one in four HIV-positive people thought to be unaware of their infection. The service also offers testing for other sexually-transmitted infections, including syphilis, hepatitis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
