At Hornet, we are committed to the health and wellness of our community. We believe that healthcare is a right and want to ensure that everyone has access to their HIV prevention and treatment needs. That is why we work to promote awareness of HIV with our Know Your Status feature (KYS) which has been a feature of Hornet since 2011.

Early detection can make a big difference in your treatment, the sooner you are tested the sooner you can take control of your health. While there is no cure for HIV, getting tested often can help you stay healthy by getting on treatment early. Achieving an undetectable viral load means people can live a long, healthy life and the chance of transmission is virtually impossible.

Getting tested is fast and there are many free testing sites around the world. Find a testing center that is right for you and get into a routine of getting tested every three to six months.

You can find the nearest HIV Test Centers on the following links:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

HIV.gov: Hiv Testing Services Locator

We encourage you to share your HIV status in your Hornet profile and to keep it current. Disclosing your status is nothing to be ashamed of and it’s good for your health and the community. We can all work together to prevent HIV and reduce Stigma.

Note: To learn more about HIV & Sexual health, you can watch Hornet’s ‘Ask a Pro’ Video
