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 HIV TESTING DAY: TAKE THE TEST, TAKE CONTROL





Today marks the 19th year
NHTD and there is more reason than ever to get tested. If you negative, you can
work to stay negative. If you test positive, you can work to stay healthy and
protect yourself and others.







Today the end of the epidemic really is in sight. We know now that
people receiving "effective" treatment with drug cocktails - fully
suppressing viral replication - aren't just living longer. They also have
radically less risk of sharing their infections with others. In theory, we can
test and treat our way out of this!









But today TOO many persons are living with HIV today don't know it.
We have to reach them! NHTD is more important than ever - the "silent infected"
and everyone living in hot spots of undetected and untreated HIV need to know
their status









We lost SO many loved
ones to this epidemic! We owe it to them to make things change and the first
step is to know your HIV status.
