You are likely to have heard of HIV before. Or perhaps you are sexually active and wonder if you are HIV-positive. Although there is no cure for HIV, people are reluctant to get tested mainly due to the social stigma surrounding people with not only HIV but other STDs as well.

If you want to get tested for HIV but want to keep it under wraps, I have good news for you -- anonymous HIV testing is available.
