Today is National HIV Testing Day

Take the Test, Take Control. National HIV Testing Day – 6/27/2010In the United States, nearly 1.2 million people are living with HIV.  Fifteen percent of women who are HIV-positive are unaware of their status.  It is important to be tested since HIV often does not show early signs.  Knowing your status when it comes to HIV can help you take the next step in maintaining your health or receiving necessary treatment. National HIV Testing Day is a great time to take action when it comes to your reproductive health.  Your personal healthcare provider is a great resource for HIV testing options.
