Know Your Status for National HIV Testing Day

HIV Spike in Humboldt County; Testing Is Important, Says Health and Human Services

"People can live long and normal lives with HIV with effective and free treatment available to them", says the health ministry.

Dix said there are an estimated 7,271 people living with HIV in B.C. In June 2017, the programme once again excelled by exceeding the target of testing 1,000 people by 194.5 percent with 1945 people knowing their HIV status. Health officials recommend that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once. With an early diagnoses, people who test positive for HIV can start medical treatment to stay healthy and greatly reduce the chances of transmitting HIV.

Heartland CARES Inc. will provide fast, free and confidential HIV testing at 619 N. 30th St., Paducah, and at St. Luke Free Clinic, 408 W. 17th St., Hopkinsville from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday as part of National HIV Testing Day.

It's especially important to keep up with your status in Louisiana, which has one of the nation's highest rates of HIV infections. Together, KFS, LPRC and OUH have partnered with Men's Health Initiative, Options for Sexual Health, REL8 Okanagan, and Senior Gay Men in Kelowna to expand on the event's reach that will provide an opportunity for cross-connection with our effected communities, make testing available while providing FREE TREATS provided by Okanagan Ice Pops and So Sweet.

The theme for this year's National HIV Testing Day is "Test your way".

Another early exit for Socceroos at the World Cup
They could, however, take solace from a win which saw them climb off the foot of group B and finish their campaign third. France boss Didier Deschamps rung the changes for this afternoon's final group C match against Denmark.

It's an influence public figures like Henderson can use to bring the conversation of HIV prevention and treatment to the forefront; a cause advocates like Jeremy Hobbs has been championing for years.

"All it is is a little finger prick", said Gigi Robinson with New Horizons, "do a little brush, suck up a little blood, and you'll know your results".

Philip said the state has two programs it plans to roll out to all 67 county health departments by the end of 2018.

More than 2,000 people in this province have benefited from the expanded coverage of drugs that can prevent HIV infection.

"The CDC puts out press releases, the Delaware Division of Public Health puts out press releases, people see it on Facebook or other social media, so it usually drives more people in for testing", Seeley said.
