The SMS should be easy to action or follow. If you give someone advice or information, you want them to understand it easily. Simple information
will help people to make decisions for themselves. Giving people a clear message
will help them understand what you want to say and will help them share the information with others if they want to. Example SMS:
✎ Know your viral load (the amount of HIV in your blood) to stay healthy. Get a viral load blood test every 6 months – and ask your nurse for the results!
✎ Explaining to your boyfriend or girlfriend that you are HIV positive can be hard. Find a quiet, private time to talk to them and always have condoms with you.
✎ Don’t know what to tell your husband or boyfriend about your pregnancy? Take him to the clinic and you will be able to ask questions together.
