HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virusÂ that causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The virus attacks the cells of your body's immune system, so that over time it is harder and harder for you to successfully fight infections and some cancers. It is passed by having sex with an infected partner, through infected blood or by sharing needles during drug use. This test checks for the HIV virus.
The test also checks for Hepatitis B and C. Hepatitis B can be passed from person by person through blood, semen, vaginal fluids and, again, by infected needles or syringes. Hepatitis C, the most common type of viral hepatitis in England, is usually transmitted through blood-to-blood contact.
