Response from Ms. Southall
Hi It's important to have the follow up testing run. There are test that come back with a false positive. If it is positive than making sure that he is in with a expert HIV care provider and he gets on treatment is important. But really no decisions should be made until you have the confirmatory test back and then make decisions from there. Write me here and let me know what you find out and I can help you move forward from there.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
