National HIV Testing Day Is on June 27
WEDNESDAY, June 27, 2018 -- In honor of National HIV Testing Day, health care providers should encourage people to get an HIV test.
About 1 in 7 people in the United States who have HIV don't know that they are infected, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with young people most likely to be unaware of their HIV status.
National HIV Testing Day on June 27 is a great opportunity to encourage people to get tested. The CDC recommends that everyone between ages 13 and 64 years be tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People with certain risk factors should get tested more often.
