HIV testing has become such a huge obstacle that many providers and patients prefer to sail around it.
Key element of HIV care and public health
Importance of age-appropriate messaging
Protect yourself/others from STIs and new HIV
Condomize every time you have sex
Engage partners: testing/disclosure if safe
Fewer partners = less risk
Drugs and alcohol = greater risk (SEP)
Consider not having sex (other ways to express love)
Discuss safe pregnancy options (PMTCT)
