From the 17th until the 23rd of November it is National HIV testing week. This is a campaign started by the HIV Prevention England. The National HIV testing week is there to remind people, to get tested. 

Due to this the Public health England has provided in the past and expanded this year the free HIV postal testing kits. Many people on social media have shared their opinions on it and went testing themselves, such as the Duke of Sussex. He said Testing on HIV should be something to be proud of, not something to be embarrassed or ashamed about. This should convince people to take the test and not be ashamed, as the Duke of Sussex was the first member of the royal family to be tested on the HIV virus.

Luca (22) suffers himself on Aids after going to a club with some friends he got stabbed in the back with a contagious needle. Luca said that he was scared to do this test, but he said that this brings some kind clarity. He supports the national HIV testing week in every way he can and wants to help especially young people who suffer from this illness.
