National HIV Testing Day

An estimated 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States and almost one in five don’t know they are infected.  Millions of Americans are at risk for HIV and each year in recognition of National HIV Testing Day (June 27th each year) are asked to “Take the test, take control” by learning their HIV status.  

You can get free and confidential HIV testing June 28, 12 – 2pm at the Ruby Tucker Family Center 322 Tancil Court.  

The value and importance of National HIV Testing Day is to raise awareness of one of our nation’s most deadly, yet most preventable diseases. Knowing your status, and that of your partner, is one step toward stemming the spread of HIV/AIDS.  

Unfortunately, many Americans find out they are HIV positive when they are already ill and their immune system has begun to fail. Those who learn they have HIV can get the treatment they need to live a long and healthy life.  

Don’t put yourself at risk by NOT knowing YOUR status. You should also expect your partner to do the same.  

HIV testing is also available every Wednesday from 1 – 3 p.m. and Thursday from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at Alexandria Health Department 4480 King Street, Alexandria, VA.
