June 27 is National HIV Testing Day
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in seven people in the United States who are infected with HIV don’t know they have it. On June 27—National HIV Testing Day—people nationwide are encouraged to learn their HIV status. CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People with certain risk factors should get tested more often.
