Would you ever use an HIV in-home test kit?

Gregory Hicks
medical-records clerk | Northeast Philadelphia
“Yes. It’s the wise thing to do. I’m a private person. I don’t want anyone else getting into my business. And it’s for a good cause, because people need to know their situation. That helps reduce the spread of the epidemic.”

Carl Lutts
diagnostic technician | Northern Liberties
“Yes. I have a busy schedule. I prefer the convenience of self-testing. And I want the security of knowing my status. I’ve been tested before. I feel it’s important for everyone to promote safe sex.”

Meghan O’Reilly
student | Yardley
“No. I’d rather have it done in a medical setting. I’d like to have someone else present to help me process the information. Just in case the answer is yes, I wouldn’t want to be alone. I’d have a lot of questions.”

Craig Thompson
wok cook | Society Hill
“Yes. The money [for the test] would be well worth the peace of mind. I could handle the results. If it came back positive, I wouldn’t keep it a secret. I’d reach out to health professionals for help. I’d make sure I got the proper treatment.”
