HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that can lead to acquired immune deficiency syndrome. It causes damage to your body’s immune system cells, so it cannot fight infections as well or defend itself against some cancers and other diseases. The Rapid HIV Test is a new type of test that can detect the virus in just 10 minutes. This makes it more convenient than other types of testing, which may take up to 48 hours for results to come back.
The Rapid HIV Test is non-invasive and painless since it only requires a finger prick and not an actual blood draw.
These Tests are safe because they detect antibodies, which will be present even if you have been infected with the virus for less than three months.
Rapid tests also do not require any laboratory equipment or special skills on behalf of the person administering them.
These tests can be used by anyone who needs peace of mind for themselves, their partners, or their children.
