Did you know: Wednesday, June 27th is National HIV testing day!
National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is an annual campaign coordinated by the National Association of People with AIDS to encourage people of all ages to "Take the Test, Take Control."
Too many people don't know they have HIV. In the United States, nearly 1.2 million people are living with HIV, and almost one in five don't know they are infected. Getting tested is the first step to finding out if you have HIV. If you have HIV, getting medical care and taking medicines regularly helps you live a longer, healthier life and also lowers the chances of passing HIV on to others. The Union County Health Department will have free walk-in HIV testing Wednesday, June 27 from 3pm to 5pm. In addition Free HIV testing can be scheduled through the Union County Sexual Health Clinic by calling (937)-642-2053 or toll free (888) 333-9461
