Kansas: Hope Street Tests Teens for HIV
March 16, 2009
Wichita's Hope Street Youth Development group hosted a sexual health information and HIV testing event on March 10 to mark National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. It is the first time Hope Street offered rapid HIV testing, which was administered by the Sedgwick County Health Department. Hope Street also distributed information from the Wichita Area Sexual Assault Center, Planned Parenthood, and the health department.
"There are people being diagnosed at such a young age, it just absolutely kills me," said Beth Tackitt, a disease intervention specialist with the county Health Department.
