National HIV Testing Day
Wednesday, June 27th is National HIV Testing Day. The theme this year is "Take the test. Take control. Update your status!" Testing is so important because 20% of the people with HIV don't know they have it! The only way to know is to get tested. When you know your status, you know what to do to protect yourself when you're negative, and what to do to take care of yourself if you're positive. HIV positive people who take their medications the way they are supposed to and are in the "undetectable" state, reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to someone else by 96%!
In observance of National HIV Testing Day, FAHASS will be conducting HIV tests at the Downtown Branch of the library from 10:00am until 6:00pm. At 6:00pm the testing will shift back to FAHASS' offices at 415 Elm St to finish up the testing day at 8:00pm. Testing at FAHASS is normally conducted Monday through Thursday, from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and until 8:00pm on Wednesdays.
We strongly encourage the highest risk groups to get tested! They are Black men and women, Hispanic men and women, people over the age of 50, and particularly men having sex with men (MSM). Please let your friends and family who fall into one or more of these groups know about the testing and encourage them to have a test done!
