HIV is a retrovirus that may be transmitted sexually as well as from mother to child or through the sharing of infected blood via needles and blood products. HIV if undetected and untreated may lead to AIDS. If HIV is detected early via a blood test it is a very manageable infection which, in most cases, consists of tablet a day. Patients with HIV living in Ireland can have a normal life expectancy due to the significant advances in care over the last three decades.

At Himerus Health we not only offer rapid HIV testing but we can also continue to look after your HIV privately including the provision of anti-retroviral therapy if required.
