From 23 till 30 of November is continue the European Testing Week

The European Testing Week is an international campaign that encourages partner organisations—in community, health care and policy institutions-- throughout Europe to unite for one week to increase testing efforts and promote awareness on the benefits of earlier hepatitis and HIV testing. This initiative has progressed since its start in 2013 and has grown to be a widely recognised international event with hundreds of organisations participating every year. Each organisation volunteers their own time to organise their Testing Week activities and create incredible displays of a united effort to increase testing awareness at all organisational levels.

The Center for Public Health of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine also joined the event and invited Ukrainians to test for HIV and hepatitis.

Where to test?

People can testing all over Ukraine. To find the testing point closest to you, download a full-length document. You can see the addresses, telephones, and time of the testing sites by following: http://bit.ly/2SeSn8f.

What do you need to go through the testing?

Testing is free, confidential, and painless, with the help of express tests. All that is needed is a drop of blood and 15 minutes of time.

Why you should test?

In Ukraine, every second person with HIV does not know about his status. In the early stages, HIV has no symptoms. The sooner you learn about HIV, the sooner you start treatment.

Testing is a concern for yourself and your loved ones. Take care of your own health, test for HIV!

The European Week of HIV testing and hepatitis is a pan-European information campaign that calls for a week to intensify communication on the benefits of early detection of HIV and hepatitis.

The main objective of the European Week of Testing is to make more people aware of their HIV status and hepatitis and minimize the problem of late diagnosis of these infections.
