This year, National HIV Testing Week starts on Saturday 16 November 2019.
National HIV Testing Week is a campaign to promote regular testing among the most affected population groups in England. This helps to reduce the number of people living with undiagnosed HIV and those diagnosed late.
This year, the campaign will feature celebrities and influencers promoting ‘Give HIV the finger: a finger-prick test is all it takes’, a continuation of the successful creative that we have run for the last two years.
We are inviting organisations to participate by running campaign events, providing extra testing opportunities, and promoting HIV testing and prevention services with our support.
