It's National HIV Testing Week

18 November 2017

National HIV Testing Week is a great opportunity to get tested and encourage others to test for HIV. Testing is free, fast, confidential and simple – you can even do it at home.

The METRO team and partners, are offering testing at venues across London and Medway. We have our GSH testing bus at Avery Hill Campus, University of Greenwich, on Monday 27th November 12:00pm - 6:00pm and in General Gordon Square on Friday 1st December 12:00pm - 6:00pm.

The GMI Partnership, led by METRO, in partnership with Positive East and Spectra, has a full schedule of testing in community venues across London.

In Medway you will find us, again with our partners, on Chatham High Street on Friday 24th November.

Our Emerging Communities team will be out in Ealing 5:00pm - 7:00pm on Monday 20th November and in Brixton 5:00pm - 7:00pm on Thursday 23rd November.

You can order testing kits from Greenwich Sexual Health (GSH), Bexley Sexual Health (BSH) and Pitstop PLUS. You can also order a kit from the national programme.

National HIV Testing Week promotes HIV testing to the most affected population groups in England, men who have sex with men (MSM) and black African men and women. These groups make up seven out of 10 people in the UK living with HIV.

The week is co-ordinated by HIV Prevention England (HPE) with support and participation from organisations in the public, statutory and private sectors, and promotes the benefits of regular testing and treatment for both the individual and community.
