National HIV Testing Day
Jun 10, 1999

I heard that there is a day in June that is national HIV testing day. Do you know what day that is, and where you go for tests on that day?

Thanks, Jim

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Thank you for your question. National HIV Testing Day is June 27th of each year, and is sponsored by the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA). The purpose of National HIV Testing Day is to increase awareness for HIV testing. If you want to get tested, you can go to your local doctor, a local clinic, or your local health department. Some AIDS service organizations also do HIV testing. To find the location of your nearest testing site, call your local AIDS hotline. For more information on National HIV Testing Day, contact NAPWA at 202-898-0414 (this is a toll-call to Washington, DC).

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).
