June 27 is National HIV Testing Day

A day to get the facts, get tested, and get involved!
Around 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and one in eight people don’t know they have it. Nearly 45,000 people find out they have HIV every year. More than 90% of new HIV infections in the United States could be prevented by testing and diagnosing people living with HIV and making sure they receive early, ongoing treatment.

Get Tested. Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help keep you and your partner healthy. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People with certain risk factors should get tested more often. Learn what those risk factors are and how often you should be tested.

Let’s continue to pray for those who have been infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.
