To prevent AIDS and put an end to prejudice and discrimination against patients, campaigns to bring awareness and education about AIDS are carried out in several countries. With technological advances, medicine is able to detect HIV at an early stage, as well as initiate and continue treatment to prevent the symptoms of AIDS.
Learn the correct knowledge, and if you’re worried you’re infected, get tested.
In Mie Prefecture, it is possible to take an anonymous HIV test for free at the Public Health Centers (Hokenjo – 保健所).
*For more details, go to Hokenjo’s homepage or make an inquiry by phone.
