Saving Lives is a public health awareness charity with an ambitious but simple aim: to educate people about sexual health and HIV, and to encourage them to get tested. 

"One in five of those living with HIV are unaware they are carrying the infection." 

Think about that: one in five of those with HIV are undiagnosed. What does that mean? It means they can’t access the life-saving treatment doctors can now offer; it means they’re getting sicker and they don’t even know it; and it means they may well be passing on the infection to others.

The same is true for hepatitis and other blood-borne viruses or sexually transmitted infections: they can all be passed on without anyone knowing, they can all be symptomless for a long time, and they can all be detected with a simple test. Not only that, but effective treatment exists for all of them, too. So why not take the test and know your status?.

"That's why we should all consider getting tested - because testing saves lives."
