NAT welcomes new HIV testing campaign

Friday, July 3, 2009

NAT today welcomed a new HIV testing campaign launched by THT: ‘THIVK. Test. Take Control’.

Yusef Azad, Director of Policy and Campaigns at NAT, comments:

"We are delighted to see a new national HIV testing campaign for gay men, after almost 10 years. The campaign follows recommendations made by NAT in our HIV Testing Action Plan.1

It is fantastic to see the UKs leading sexual health charity putting our recommendations into practice. We do hope this campaign will succeed in reducing undiagnosed and late diagnosed HIV among gay men."
