HIV testing is the only way to know for sure if someone has HIV. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in eight people in the United States infected with HIV don’t know it. That means they aren't getting the medical care they need to stay healthy and to avoid passing HIV to others.
June 27 is designated National HIV Testing Day to encourage people 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.
