Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a killer disease that still needs serious education, as was the case in the 1990s and early 2000s. Many people ignore several precautionary measures. The cause of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) has to be taken seriously as its end results are. The following are reasons why you should retest even if you tested negative yesterday.
Ambiguous test results
There are times when ambiguity accompanies HIV screening. The subjectivity in this results is something that should prompt you to visit a testing center for confirmation. One of the main causes of poor interpretation is faint lines that can easily be misinterpreted by the medical staff examining you.
Poor staff training
This is a disaster in many countries. The stress on the few medics available has forced some clinics to employ unqualified and poorly trained staff to deal with this sensitive issue. Poor training also affects the counseling that is given. Even if the test results are accurate, professional counseling is needed to encourage testing and guide infected persons. Therefore, your yesterday’s results might be inaccurate if an unqualified personnel handled your case.
In conclusion, regardless of the ethical concerns linked to HIV, testing is a bold step that you must take. It will save you and your loved ones.
