Pennsylvania: Don't You Both Need to Know About HIV?
June 26, 2008
Tomorrow, National HIV Testing Day, Philadelphia couples are encouraged to take part in a new campaign, "Get Tested Together," which kicks off at 11 a.m. in Love Park, 16th Street and JFK Boulevard.
"It's tricky. It can be awkward," said Bell. "We are a society that still struggles with conversations about sex."
Among those planning on attending tomorrow's event is the Rev. Alyn E. Waller of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, who was tested with his wife during an event at his church's new HIV/AIDS ministry. "My position is, 'Know your status,'" said Waller. "Every person from the age of 13 to 64 needs to know their status."
