Health Protection Scotland recently revealed that Scotland ‘continues to face challenges in preventing new HIV infections.’ This is evident in their estimation that over 6,000 people are living with HIV in Scotland, and 13% of the Scottish population remain undiagnosed.
In addition, George Valiotis, chief executive of HIV Scotland, told the BBC that many people in Scotland avoid getting tested and receiving treatment for HIV, due to the prevailing stigma. According to Mr Valiotis, the retrovirus is still seen as a terminal illness and many are scared to be associated with the infection.
HIV is no longer the life-threatening condition it once was, there are specialised treatments available that enable those infected to live a long and healthy life. However, the key to this is early detection and treatment, with testing being the only way to be certain of your HIV status.
If you need an HIV test certificate, Better2Know’s private clinics can provide you with one following your confidential testing appointment. Simply notify one of our sexual health advisors when arranging your booking. Upon receiving your results, our expert advisors can also arrange a private doctor’s consultation, or refer you to a specialist service, should you require it. We can also arrange corporate billing, if this is a service you need please get in touch by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
