HIV Testing Day Events Return

Each year, on June 27, the National Association of People With AIDS in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other national and local entities across the country organizes National HIV Testing Day. This initiative is designed to send out the message "Take the Test, Take Control" to those at risk from HIV from those already living with HIV.

NAPWA was one of the first AIDS organizations to advocate that people at risk of infection should seek out voluntary HIV counseling and testing. NAPWA explanded on this thought in 1995 by launching the National HIV Testing Day campaign.

National HIV Testing Day was developed in response to the growing number of HIV infections in communities of color and other heavily effected communities. More than 1 million people are living with HIV in the United States, and approximately one in five of those are unaware of their infection. NAPWA believes HIV testing is a critical first step in taking control and responsibility over one's health.
