Reason Number 87 to Get an HIV Test - HIV Prevention Resource Center

Organizers of the HIV testing day say it is simple to get tested and adults should do it at least every five years

The health department used to offer free hepatitis C testing, but the funding for that program ran out as well.

President Donald Trump didn't mention LGBT people in his National HIV/AIDS Testing Day statement.

For people who are HIV-negative, testing can serve as the gateway to prevention services, such a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for those at high risk.

The interviews were followed by an HIV test.

His passion lines up with a campaign backed by the CDC: Undetectable = Untransmittable. "So, with our increasing STD rates, especially syphilis, it is essential that people be tested for HIV as well", Jung said.

Former health minister Dr Fuad Khan said the former People's Partnership never denied anyone from getting HIV healthcare.

In 2016, an estimated 40,000 people were diagnosed with HIV across the country. It's important to know whether or not you have it.

Many individuals with HIV do no always know that they are living with the virus.

Today, the Trump-Pence administration issued an empty and tone deaf statement on National HIV Testing Day. "All of those things have been done because we reversed UNC policy to introduce a health card which was to bar those people from getting HIV drugs". During the time between the test and results certified counselors will provide advice on protecting yourself and others from HIV. The most common ways are from unprotected sex, intravenous drug use, or at birth.

"I definitely can understand how, because the Latino culture and it's lack of education and awareness", explained Luis Escurra, Walgreens manager who also got tested. In turn, that helps reduce new HIV infections since those who have their virus under control through treatment have effectively no risk of transmitting it to their sexual partners.

We need to normalize HIV testing and encourage others, especially those who may be at high risk for infection, to get tested. "There are people who want to know their HIV status but hesitate to go to the doctor's office because they may not want to disclose certain behaviors". Dr. Kevin Sherin is director of the county Department of Health.
