National HIV Testing Day has the goal of educating everyone about the dangers and risks of contracting HIV and encouraging everyone to get tested regularly to ensure that they are virus-free, or to catch it early. Depending on your lifestyle, you should be getting tested at least once a year if not more. Almost 1 in 5 of those living with HIV do not know that they are infected. Stay smart and get tested today.
The National Association of People with AIDS sponsors National HIV Testing Day to promote HIV testing and to help prevent the spread of the virus. The first National HIV Testing Day was observed on June 27, 1995.
