Crawley MP Henry Smith MP had an HIV test in Parliament at a Halfway to World AIDS day event.
Henry said he took the test in an act of solidarity with all those living with HIV across the world and to reinforce his commitment to HIV testing.
He added: “The Halfway to World AIDS day event was important for me to support because of the number of people in Crawley living with HIV. I wanted to take part in it to hopefully help raise awareness and de-stigmatise HIV/AIDS issues and testing for Crawley, nationally and globally.
“The Government has demonstrated strong support for increasing HIV testing in a broad array of clinical and community settings and it’s now crucial that this leadership actually changes practice on the ground.”
