Montana DPHHS launches new website highlighting HIV testing sites

Organizers of the HIV testing day say it is simple to get tested and adults should do it at least every five years

"So I give this chamber the assurance that we have reversed UNC policy which Professor Antoine based her speech on and we give free testing and treatment to everybody with HIV/AIDS". "So, with our increasing STD rates, especially syphilis, it is essential that people be tested for HIV as well", Jung said. Getting tested for HIV regularly (at least once a year) is an important part of good sexual health. For example, as part of their annual wellness check, when beginning a new relationship, when considering conceiving a child, when starting pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), or when they are anxious about a possible exposure to HIV.

Health Wellness at Camp Rehoboth said, "we treat it as a chronic illness and it's really important that you're taking control of your choices so you don't wanna infect anyone else with HIV".

The Pacific Pride Foundation suggests people get HIV testing regularly. This includes helping people keep their risks down and stay negative or how to get access to treatment. So they could be unknowingly passing it on to other people and they're passing it on to people.

His passion lines up with a campaign backed by the CDC: Undetectable = Untransmittable.

National HIV Testing Day: Humboldt residents encouraged to get tested
In recognition of National HIV Testing Day, the Greenwich Department of Health encourages residents to get tested for HIV. The CDC estimates that 15 percent of those infected are unaware that they are HIV positive.

Nobody wants to find out that they have HIV.

Because of a stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS, some people might feel embarrassed about going for a test, and Warren is hoping the pilot project will help change that. In fact, approximately half of those with HIV achieved viral suppression through lifesaving medications. An estimated 15% of people living with HIV did not know they were infected, according to the study, but they accounted for about 40% of new HIV transmissions in the US every year. HIV is a test that has to be requested. It can reinforce the steps that they've taken to avoid HIV infection and provide peace of mind.

Officials also recommended pre-exposure prophylaxis, which is usually a daily medication taken to protect against exposure to the virus via sex or intravenous drug use. According to the government's HIV statistics, more than one million people are now living in the USA with HIV.

HIV and AIDS remain a persistent problem in the United States and around the world. Of those people, about 1 in 7, do not know they are infected.
