Prince Harry: ‘With testing, we can end HIV’
Prince Harry has made a plea for HIV testing to be seen as the norm, to bring an end to the virus within a generation.
The Duke of Sussex was speaking out to promote this year’s National HIV Testing Week.
Prince Harry took a HIV test live on Facebook on July 14 to show how easy it is. It was hailed by campaigners as a “groundbreaking moment in the fight against HIV.”
HIV awareness group the Terrence Higgins Trust has reported a five-fold increase in the number of orders of HIV self-tests since the prince’s broadcast.
Prince Harry’s live stream — which showed him taking a rapid HIV test at a sexual health clinic in London — gained over 2 million views.
