Arizona: Officials Get HIV Tests to Foster Awareness

July 7, 2006

Last week at Body Positive in Phoenix, Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox and Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon underwent HIV testing. "What you don't know can hurt you. The first step in treatment and prevention is knowing about it," Gordon said. The testing, which coincided with National HIV Testing Day, was part of the national Mayors' Campaign Against HIV. About one in 500 Arizonans are HIV-positive. Wilcox said the test was "very quick, very easy, and it didn't hurt."
