World AIDS Day

December 1st was World AIDS day, and with women comprising 50% of HIV positive individuals worldwide, and 25% in the U.S., it is important to know our risk. Women are also especially susceptible to HIV/AIDS and other STIs due to their unique physiology.

Take the passing of this day as an opportunity to consider your own reproductive health and choices. For more information about HIV/AIDS and testing services visit UW Health’s HIV Testing: Should I Get Tested for Human Immunodeficiency Virus?
