Approximately 1200 people underwent testing for diagnosis of HIV and syphilis during the campaign's national Knowing Stay in Curitiba

We identified 20 new cases of HIV and 77 for syphilis during the campaign's national Knowing Stay in Curitiba, between days 1. Th and April 5. . Approximately 1200 people underwent testing for disease diagnosis.

The rapid tests, which provide results in 30 minutes, can still be made in the Guidance and Counseling Center (AOC) at the Centre. The basic health units are also collecting the exam, but the result is ready in 72 hours.

During the week of mobilization, rapid testing was conducted at AOC and seven health units, and aimed to encourage early diagnosis of disease and maintain quality of life of patients.

The director of the Epidemiology Center of the Department of Health of Curitiba, Moacir Pires Ramos, said only among patients with HIV, will be 20 people who will receive appropriate treatment and, in addition, will stop transmitting the virus to others.

Ramos said that, when treated early, both AIDS patients as syphilis, have excellent results. But when the disease is already in a more advanced, the patient's quality of life is compromised, he said.
