Support I Know. I Took the Test Day

The Department of Health and Human Services and a number of its partner organizations are promoting National HIV Testing Day on June 27.  The day is designed to encourage Americans to get tested for HIV and encourage others to do so.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1 out of 5 people living with HIV in the U.S. are unaware they have the disease.  That number needs to come down.

Among other activities, HHS’s and its partners are encouraging people to:

1.    Share your story about what taking the HIV test mean to you.
2.    Encourage others to get tested.  You can send a text message with your ZIP code to KNOWIT or visiting to find a local testing center

Support the cause by spreading the word.  And, if you don’t know your HIV status get tested.
