White House Issues Statement on National HIV Testing Day

Debby Warren demonstrates how the Insti kit works

June 27th marks National HIV Testing Day, a day to raise awareness about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis, while reducing the stigma around HIV.

Several clinics and medical providers will offer free screenings on Wednesday.

The NHTD 2018 theme is "Doing It My Way, Testing for HIV". In 2016, Miami topped the list of highest new infection rate per capita of any US city: 47 per 100,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"Today, make getting tested and knowing your HIV status a priority", said State Surgeon General and Secretary Dr. Our understanding of what it means to have HIV and people's reactions to someone living with HIV are changing rapidly.

As part of Canada's first country-wide HIV testing day, three New Brunswick organizations - Avenue B in Saint John, AIDS New Brunswick in Fredericton and AIDS Moncton - will be administering the speedy tests.

DPHHS leaders say public health partners are expanding testing around Montana, and that many offer tests free of charge and some do them anonymously in private settings.

One week from now, Shepherd will get a phone call if he tests positive for HIV.

"They say 81 is the new 79", Colbert joked during his opening monologue late Wednesday. Bush appointee, could become the center of the court, Blackman said .

Former health minister Dr Fuad Khan said the former People's Partnership never denied anyone from getting HIV healthcare.

For people who are HIV-negative, testing can serve as the gateway to prevention services, such a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for those at high risk.

Trained personnel will administer the Insti HIV 1-HIV 2 rapid antibody test, she said. A spokesperson told paNOW the whole process takes only about 20 minutes, and plenty of educational materials are also available.

"You'll die from a vehicle crash before you [die of] HIV if you're compliant and you take your medications". Chamberlin said substance abuse treatment facilities will generally also test people when they come in.

Most commonly, people get or transmit HIV through sexual behaviors and needle or syringe use.

The study's authors says an estimated 15% of people with HIV do not know about their infection, and are responsible for about 40% of the HIV transmissions each year. What you share may motivate someone to seek a test and get the powerful information that the results provide for their health.
