More than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and 1 in 8 people don’t know they have it. During National HIV Testing Day on June 27, you can help spread the word about the importance of testing.
healthfinder.gov provides toolkits for several National Health Observances including, National HIV Testing Day on June 27. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, health care providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like HIV prevention.
We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
- Share these HIV testing questions for the doctor.
- Post an announcement on your website.
- Tweet about National HIV Testing Day.
- Host a fundraising event to support an agency that provides HIV testing in your area.
- Add the HIV Testing & Care Services Locator widget to your website and remind everyone to get tested on June 27.
By raising awareness about the importance of HIV testing, communities, organizations, and health professionals can work together to encourage everyone to get tested.
