    Hi Mams,

    Your question is a little vague. Did you repeat the test for malaria or HIV after finishing your course of anti-malarial medications? Is your concern regarding HIV testing or malaria testing?

    Regards

        Hi Mams,

        Sounds like you were given Post Exposure Prophylaxis. If your repeat test is negative at 3 months after exposure, you do not have HIV.
