‘I’ve tested positive. What now?’
If signs of HIV infection are found in your blood, then the test will be ‘positive’.
Testing ‘positive’ doesn’t mean you have AIDS or will get it. AIDS - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome - is the name for a range of illnesses people with HIV can get. With early access to good and effective treatment, most people with HIV don’t develop AIDS and can live a longer, healthier life.
