Change in HIV Window Period – A Clinical Perspective
As of September 2020, the guidelines on the window period for HIV testing has changed from 28 days after possible exposure to 45 days. Whilst this change is still becoming a part of daily practice within clinics throughout the UK, the reasons for this, and its implications, remain unclear amongst clinicians in sexual health.
In order to facilitate the adoption of this new guideline (with seamlessness), we will be holding a virtual seminar for our colleague nurses and doctors.
We very much look forward to seeing you all at this virtual event.
Healthcare professionals and HIV eradication advocates
