HIV and STI Testing For You
Better2Know’s efficient and anonymous STI testing is available throughout the African continent. Our tests and screens are designed and reviewed by a panel of sexual health specialists to ensure you get the peace of mind you need. For those people more concerned about HIV, we have three types of HIV tests, depending on when you may have been exposed to the infection.
- The 10-day test is available on its own and as part of the Early Detection Screen, and is one of the most accurate test at this stage of incubation. Though this is an extremely efficient screen, it remains advisable to retest within one to three months if you receive a negative result.
- Our 28-day test is suitable for those who may have been infected at least four weeks before getting tested. This is a highly reliable, fourth generation HIV test.
- The Instant HIV test is appropriate 26 days after potential exposure. This popular testing option detects both types of HIV as well as the p24 antigen, with results available within 30 minutes of providing your sample. Call our Patient Services team to locate your nearest Instant testing clinic.
Better2Know can also provide you with an HIV certificate, just notify our Patient Services team upon booking your appointment. For more information on our HIV testing services, select the HIV tab at the top of the page or refer to the table above.
