Better2Know provides Instant HIV testing at private sexual health clinics throughout the Middle East. Our Instant HIV test is suitable for both men and women, and will detect both types of HIV (type I and type II) as well as the p24 antigen. The test is appropriate just 26 days after potential exposure.

With a Better2Know Instant HIV test, you can test for HIV individually, or combine your test with others as part of a more conclusive STI screen.


Which samples will be used?

The Better2Know Instant HIV test requires a single blood sample, which is collected from the fingertip. The blood from the sample is then added to a test strip, followed by a drop of a reagent solution. Your results will be provided shortly after. There are no fasting requirements related to this test.

How will I receive my results?

With Better2Know’s Instant HIV test, you will receive your results within 30 minutes, before you leave the clinic. Your Better2Know doctor, or nurse, will also provide you with a Rapid Test Results Report as a record of your HIV test.

What if I test positive?

If your Instant HIV test is reactive, you will receive confirmatory, laboratory-based testing at no further cost. We can also schedule a doctor’s consultation to discuss your results privately. If you do test positive for HIV, Better2Know will help you access the support and treatment you need. Alternatively, you could also take your Instant test results to your personal doctor or sexual health centre.
