Free HIV screenings set for National HIV Testing Day in Del

HIV Spike in Humboldt County; Testing Is Important, Says Health and Human Services

There will also be free food for those going to get tested.

National HIV Testing Day is an awareness campaign promoted by the National Association of People with AIDS and the CDC.

Local testing partners will provide trained counselors to conduct the testing and will provide results on-site within minutes. About one in seven people in the United States who have HIV don't know they are HIV positive, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, with proper adherence to medication, successfully treated patients can not easily transmit the virus to others. "We publicize it as much as we can, so we definitely have an increase of testing that day".

JCMC is the official provider for all HIV tests and other health screenings at this year's event. Early diagnosis and treatment is both beneficial for the health of the person living with HIV, and protects their sexual partners.

According to a press release from the Ministry of Health, the event "offers an opportunity for the general public, inclusive of people who may feel they are at risk or been exposed to the virus, to receive professional counselling and fast and efficient testing".

He says it's vital to get tested regularly because if ignored it can turn into AID's, the final stage of HIV. "If we can curb HIV, imagine the global leadership B.C. can show in tackling other communicable diseases through expanding access to testing, treatment and prevention".

The meeting was to, among other things, provide the chiefs and queen mothers' updates on the national response to HIV and solicit their support in the nation's quest to end AIDS as a public health threat by the year 2030.

"We first expanded our presence and services in St. Petersburg with the opening of the Out of the Closet thrift store and AHF Pharmacy in May 2017". As of August 31, 2017, Walgreens operates 8,100 drugstores with a presence in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, along with its omnichannel business, Walgreens.com.

Several high-quality testing services are offered at little to no cost.
