National HIV Testing Day: Walgreens to Provide Free HIV Testing in Nearly 175 Stores Across 54 Cities
June 14, 2013
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation announced that Greater than AIDS, AIDS service organizations (ASOs), and state and local health departments will partner to offer free HIV testing in 175 Walgreens stores in 54 cities in 22 states to observe National HIV Testing Day on June 27. The third year of the Greater than AIDS and Walgreens partnership will more than triple the number of stores and organizations that participated in 2012. More than 130 state and local health departments and ASOs will conduct outreach activities, coordinate the rapid testing, and report results at the Walgreens outlets. Walgreens also will support the effort by posting National HIV Testing Day messages on its Times Square digital display and publicizing the free testing service through Walgreens stores not offering HIV testing.
