National HIV Testing Day is June 27

GetTestedHIV testing is the only way to know for sure if someone has HIV. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the more than 1.1 million people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States today, 1 in every 7 is not aware of their positive status. That means they aren’t getting the medical care they need. We encourage HIV testing on National HIV Testing Day as well as every day to ensure people get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment services.

June 27 is designated National HIV Testing Day to encourage people to learn their HIV status. CDC 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.

On this day, we unite with partners, such as CODAC, COPE Community Services Inc., Pima County Health Department, and Walgreens to raise awareness about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis of HIV.
