Ending HIV have produced a new video enouraging more HIV testing in a bid to end the epidemic by 2020.

The video features community members such as Olympic champion Matthew Mitcham, Same Same founder Tim Duggan and head of ACON Nick Parkhill.

Professor Andrew Grulich from the Kirby Institute UNSW explains the goal to end HIV is achievable, but will require work.

"We really can change the epidemic, but it's no small task. What we need to do is to hugely increase testing rates amongst gay men."

Matthew Mitcham added "If we put our minds to it we really can end the HIV epidemic by 2020."

Watch the video.
