We could prevent thousands of needless HIV infections
“If more Americans were tested as recommended, we could prevent thousands of needless HIV infections and deaths. National HIV Testing Day serves as a reminder to take a stand against one of the key issues driving this epidemic – not knowing your HIV status. Take your stand today – take the test and take control.
