I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

NATIONAL H. I. V. TESTING DAY



KEEP THE PROMISE






On this day, HIV testing sites and AIDS service providers around the globe will participate in events for National HIV Testing Day. These activities will include health fairs, community education, special events, and extended testing hours.





National HIV Testing Day is critical to the fight against HIV/AIDS because it presents an opportunity for people nationwide to learn their HIV status, and to gain the knowledge they need to take control of their health and their lives. National HIV Testing Day also provides an invaluable opportunity to dispel the myths and stigma associated with HIV testing, and to reach those who have never been tested or who have engaged in high-risk behavior since their last test.


More than one million persons have HIV and many do not even know it. With improved treatment and care, people are now living with HIV/AIDS. However, this life saving treatment never reaches people who do not know they are infected. Knowing your HIV status is the best way to help win the fight against AIDS.
