Men who have sex with men. A simple test could save your life
"Having the AIDS virus, HIV, isn't a death sentence. What's dangerous is not knowing you have it. You could be unnecessarily putting your own life at risk, as well as unknowingly infecting others. If you've been diagnosed with HIV, there are things you can do to avoid developing AIDS. But if you don't know you have the virus, you could end up as another AIDS statistic. Please don't let that happen. If you have given or taken anal sex without a condom since 1980, you may be infected with HIV. A simple, confidential test will let you. It's quite comfortable, and you'll be treated with respect. Call 227 8355 (country callers 008 199 287) and we'll answer all your questions about the HIV test and advise you on where to have it done. Getting tested could save your life. Putting it off could be fatal, for you and the people you care about."
