Join the Positive Resource Connection on Wednesday, June 26th at the Main ACPL Branch from 10am- 4pm for National HIV Testing Day. Free, walk-in HIV testing will be offered, as well as light refreshments while supplies last.
First observed in 1995, National HIV Testing Day is recognized each year on June 27th. On this day, people are encouraged to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment services. Early HIV diagnosis is key to stopping the virus in its tracks and reaching an undetectable level, meaning the virus can no longer be transmitted while enrolled in proper treatment.
This year’s theme is “Doing It My Way,” focusing on testimonials from real people who make testing part of their lives – on their terms and in their way. Positive Resource Connection will be sharing video testimonials through social media from celebrities, prominent figures and real-life people about the importance of testing in their personal lives.
