Spotlight: National HIV Testing Day – June 27th

National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is an annual event meant to raise awareness of the importance of knowing one’s HIV status and encourage at-risk individuals to receive an HIV test.

CDC estimates that approximately 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV; of these, an estimated 21% do not know they are infected.

Across the country, thousands of HIV testing sites, state and local health departments, and community-based HIV/AIDS service providers will participate in NHTD events, by holding health fairs, providing community and media outreach, hosting special testing-related events or operating extended hours. Some of these events may be scheduled in the days and weeks surrounding NHTD.

NHTD organizers will also reach out to communities at increased risk of HIV infection, including African American and Latino populations, both of which are disproportionately affected with HIV when compared to other demographic groups in the United States. The campaign also highlights the HIVtest.org website, which allows users to locate HIV testing sites in their area.
