HIV Self-Test (fingerprick blood)

Negative result

Result can be seen in the result window in 15 minutes. Place your test device over the specified site of the user guide. If there is one line appears (control line), even if the line is faint, the result is NEGATIVE, indicating that you were not infected with HIV.

However, if you have the test less than three months after you may have been exposed, you are advised to get tested again to make sure you have not been infected from that episode of exposure. Also, if you have persistent high-risk behaviours, regular testing every 6 to 12 months is recommended.

Negative result

Positive result

Result can be seen in the result window in 15 minutes. Place your test device over the specified site of the user guide. If two complete lines are present (control line and test line), even if the line is faint, the result is interpreted as POSITIVE. You may have infected with HIV.

However, the test is only for preliminary screening. Confirmatory test by taking venous blood is needed. We highly recommend you to contact the Gay Men HIV Testing Hotline of Department of Health at 2117 1069, AIDS Hotline 2780 2211 (within office hour) or approach the three NGOs for confirmatory test and counselling services:

AIDS Concern: 2394 6677
C.H.O.I.C.E.: 3188 9024
Hong Kong AIDS Foundation: 2513 0513

With early treatment, most of the HIV infected people can live a healthy and productive life.
