HIV Care Referral Procedure
Once you test positive for HIV, it is essential that you seek medical care and treatment with HIV medicines as soon as possible. HIV is a manageable disease nowadays. With effective treatment, you live longer and healthier, as well as greatly reduce your risk of transmitting HIV to others.
If you have got a confirmed laboratory blood result of your HIV status at hand, either you or your referring doctor may call us directly at (852) 2117 0896 for an appointment.
A confirmed laboratory blood result is a conventional test as opposed to rapid test. It is a blood taking from vein and takes 1 week for the result, whereas rapid test (finger prick/oral fluid) only requires 20 minutes. Rapid test is only a screening test. Any positive rapid test result should be followed by confirmatory test of venous blood conducted by a laboratory.
On the day of your appointment, bring along with you:
(a) a copy of the confirmatory laboratory blood result
(b) the medical referral letter
