National HIV Testing Day Is Saturday, June 27

Launched by the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) in 1995, National HIV Testing Day mobilizes organizations and communities across the United States to encourage early HIV diagnosis and treatment.

Of the more than 1.1 million people living with HIV nationwide in 2006, about 21 percent are unaware of their status, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In getting tested and receiving treatment if necessary, undiagnosed HIV-positive Americans are taking an important and responsible step in protecting not only their own health, but also that of their current and future sexual partners.

Help us spread the word. Encourage your friends and loved ones to get an HIV test on June 27. Visit our AIDS Services Directory to find a testing site in your community.
