Multiple Concurrent Partnerships

Having multiple concurrent partners means that you have overlapping sexual relationships. This means that you have more than one sexual partner at the same time. Having more than one partner at the same time puts you at risk of HIV. This is because you are part of a sexual network which is extremely risky when it comes to HIV. What is important is not the number of people you have sex with, but that you (and some of your partners) may not be using condoms. Read More

HIV Testing

If you know you have put yourself at risk and had unprotected sex you should go for an HIV test. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what kind of relationship you are in, if you are single, married or in a long-term relationship – everyone should know if they are HIV positive or not. Going for an HIV test is called HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT). HCT is not just about going for a blood test. When you go for HCT you get counselling and important information about how to live with HIV, and also how to protect yourself from HIV infection. Read More

Free condoms can be found at clinics and other public places like toilets, bars, community halls and youth centres. Read More
