17 September, 2008

Sinn Féin MLA and Vice-Chair of the Assembly Health Committee Michelle O'Neil has welcomed the launch of a new, confidential Rapid HIV Testing Service by the HIV Support Centre.

Speaking today Ms O Neill said:

"The launch of the new Rapid HIV Testing Centre is to be welcomed. It will provide an essential service promoting sexual health across the North of Ireland.

"Its obvious strengths are that it is both confidential and community based which will lead to greater accessibility for local people wishing to avail of its services.

"This service is long overdue and will help to provide general information on HIV/AIDS and sexual health, along with offering valuable support for people living with HIV and AIDS" CRÍOCH
