Are you #DoingIt?

hivtesting_b250pxNational HIV Testing Day is a reminder to get the facts, get tested, and get involved to take care of yourself and your partners. An estimated 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and that number grows by almost 45,000 every year. One in eight people who have HIV don't know it. That means they aren't getting the medical care they need to stay healthy and avoid passing HIV to others.

CDC has found that more than 90 percent of new HIV infections in the United States could be prevented by testing and diagnosing people who have HIV and ensuring they receive prompt, ongoing care and treatment.

Get the Facts: Protecting yourself and others against HIV starts with knowledge. Knowing the facts about HIV will help you make informed decisions about sex, drug use, and other activities that may put you and your partners at risk for HIV. Learn the basics and share what you learn with your friends and others important to you!

Get Tested: Knowing your HIV status gives you the power to control your health and your future. And getting tested has never been easier. You can ask your health care provider to test you for HIV. Many medical clinics, substance abuse programs, community health centers, and hospitals offer HIV testing. Testing is often free of charge. Find a testing location near you here.

Get Involved: HIV testing is only one step. We can all do something to help stop HIV, like sharing what you've learned or personally experienced with others, staying informed by subscribing to our email newsletters, using social media to raise awareness of HIV, and volunteering in your community.

Together - we can end this epidemic.
