hiv-testing-weekThe National HIV Testing Week is an annual event to raise awareness of the importance of regular HIV testing for England’s target populations (gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men [MSM] and African people) and to reduce stigma about HIV testing generally.

The Rise Partnership teams will be conducting HIV testing and outreach sessions across community venues. You can get involved! Residents in the target groups can order a free HIV self-sampling kit from Test.HIV. Lambeth and Southwark residents in the target groups can also order a free STI self-sampling kit which includes an HIV self-sampler from SH:24.
