National HIV Testing Day, June 27th – Stop by NIAC for free HIV and HepC testing – “No Your Status”! Each year on June 27 we observe National HIV Testing Day. On this day, we unite with partners, health departments, and other organizations to raise awareness about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis of HIV. Help encourage HIV testing on National HIV Testing Day and every day to ensure people get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment services (cdc.gov).

Key Facts

  • HIV testing is integral to HIV prevention, treatment, and care.
  • Knowledge of one’s HIV status is important for preventing the spread of disease. Studies show that those who learn they are HIV positive modify their behavior to reduce the risk of HIV transmission
  • Early knowledge of HIV status is also important for linking those with HIV to medical care and services that can reduce morbidity and mortality and improve quality of life.
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services guidelines recommend starting treatment as soon as one is diagnosed with HIV and new research has underscored the importance of starting treatment early.
