Today is National HIV Testing Day. How up-to-date is your status?
Tell us about the first (or last) time you were tested. Where’d you go? Were you worried? Did you bring a friend or partner along for moral support or to co-test?
We believe it’s important to keep the conversation about HIV prevention and survival current and at the forefront of our community, as a large number of new cases belong to African Americans. Although we account for about twelve percent of the U.S. population, we accounted for 48% of new AIDS diagnoses in 2009.
Let’s destigmatize testing by discussing it with thoughtfulness and candor. Post your comments below, and visit http://www.hivtest.org/ to find a testing site near you.
