At least 1.5 million Kenyans are living with the HIV virus and 36,000 are added to the number every year.
According to the National AIDS Control Council (NACC), Kenya has made great gains in the war on HIV the past decade, with nearly 30,000 fewer infections a year.
As the world celebrates world Aid’s day today, awareness is part of the HIV prevention agenda and Kenyans can know their status using the OraQuick HIV Self Test Kit.
Knowing your HIV status and getting tested regularly has many advantages.
It is an essential entry point to HIV treatment, and empowers one to make informed decisions on prevention and care options.
As the world’s number one self-test kit and the only one approved by the FDA, OraQuick HIV self-kit is a giant leap to increased awareness of one’s status and HIV and Aids management.
How does the OraQuick In-Home HIV test kit work?
According to FDA, the kit contains a test stick you use to swab your upper and lower gums to collect an oral fluid sample from your mouth. The stick is then placed in a tube with a testing solution.
After 20 to 40 minutes, one line will appear if the test is negative. Two lines indicate that HIV antibodies were detected and that you may be HIV positive.
If the home test is positive, a follow-up laboratory test is needed to confirm the results.
Oraquick self HIV self testing kit gives you control over your life. No need to worry about long queues at medical centres to get tested.
The kit is readily available at pharmacies or can be easily purchased on mydawa.com at only Sh250 and delivered right to your doorstep.
As an oral test kit, there is no need for a blood sample, a simple saliva and gum swab is all it takes to deliver fast, reliable and simple-to-read results.
It works by detecting your body’s natural defenders (antibodies) that help to fight infection.
