We're delighted to parter with the charity Saving Lives UK, to help promote postal HIV testing in the UK. Saving Lives, through their website Take A Test UK, makes home testing kits available, including straightforward HIV testing and full STI checkups.

The tests use a simple dried blood spot, which is easy to do at home, and you just post your sample off, where it's analysed in a lab at Public Health England, with your results notified to you within a week or so.

The Saving Lives UK home HIV test kit normally costs £24.99, but we're pleased to say that you can get a free kit in the UK by using the code BLUF20 - share it with your friends.

To help promote this partnership and encourage people to take a test, we've created a series of images, featuring BLUF member TiedMark (650), photographed by Matt Spike. We're grateful to both of them for permisson to use the image.
