A popular Rapid Test Kit for pharmacies wishing to offer a Sexual Health Clinic service. PharmaDoctor offers 2 kits to test for HIV:
An increasing number of pharmacies are now offering a Sexual Health Clinic to expand their range of clinical services offered to customers.
In the UK, according to Public Health England, 95% of people diagnosed with HIV acquired it through sexual contact, mainly through unprotected vaginal or anal sex. It is possible to catch HIV through unprotected oral sex but the risk is far lower.
Around 110,000 people are living with HIV in the UK and approximately 26,000 remain undiagnosed. Early HIV diagnosis is vital so effective treatment can be given to protect your health and also to prevent onward transmission. Many people lead long and normal lives with early detection and appropriate treatment. Late diagnosis can result in unnecessary illness and reduce your life expectancy. People who remain unaware of their HIV status are unknowingly the source of the majority of new infections.
Note: The PharmaDoctor HIV Rapid Test Kits are nearly always purchased by pharmacists alongside PharmaDoctor's Sexual Health Clinic Packages
