• Talk about it. Talk about sex and HIV with your partners. Find out when they were last tested for HIV and what their status was. Be clear that you will be having safer sex…or none at all.

• Talk to your doctor. If you are sexually active, you should get tested for HIV at least once. Do not assume your doctor will ask you to be tested for HIV.

You have the power to help stop the spread of HIV. Avoid the HIV disinformation campaign of AIDs deniers like Peter Duesberg.  Stay healthy, and stay informed.
