National HIV Testing Day

June 27, 2014

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 50,000 people get infected with HIV each year in the United States. However, 1 in 6 people living with HIV don’t know that they are infected. To promote HIV testing, National HIV Testing Day is observed each year on June 27.
CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of their routine health care. Regardless of age, people at high risk of HIV should get tested more often.
