June 27 is National Hiv Testing Day

Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio Greater than AIDS and Walgreens drug stores have teamed with the city of Cleveland to offer the screenings Wednesday at the Lee Harvard Shopping Center

The activities being held this week are in support of National Testing Day and Regional HIV Testing Day observed on 27 June. While HIV is treatable, it is most contagious in its early stages when someone may not know they have the virus. It is expected more than 1,500 people will participate in the initiative and the pilot project will lead to more newly identified patients with HIV in the month of June across the country, compared to other months of the year.

"It is the anticipation of the GAC and our partners that, through our collaboration with traditional leaders, we will leverage on your influence to address certain cultural practices and beliefs that undermine the progress we are making on HIV". They will also check your blood pressure and provide a free lunch as well. Celebrating this milestone together, the B.C. government and the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE) will continue working to reduce the number of new HIV infections in B.C., by providing expanded coverage of PrEP and PEP throughout the province, according to a press release. The CDC estimates that 15 percent of those infected are unaware that they are HIV positive.

Dix said the drug cocktail has been shown to be 92 to 99 per cent effective in battling the disease. He says that CAMP Rehoboth and other agencies in DE have been working hard to reach those who are afraid to get tested.




To this end, Ms. Trenton-Mbonde said it was important to equip the traditional leaders with information, skills and training. If a participant tests positive for HIV or another STBBI, the local community based organization will be able to form a long-term relationship with the individual and work toward ensuring their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. "The first step is knowing your status".

He said despite the gains made, the new committee had a major task towards achieving the agenda 90-90-90 by the year 2020 adding that, "educating the public to understand the need to test and know their status is critical to any strategy". "As a leader, you serve as a great influence to change the mind set of people to save your community". About 75,000 people in Canada have HIV.
