"Know your Status" on National HIV Testing Day

People across the country are taking control of their health by getting tested for HIV on National HIV Testing Day.

Furthermore, there are clinics offering free HIV testing. According to the government's HIV statistics, more than one million people are now living in the US with HIV. Finally, please help share more widely this newest reason, perhaps the 87th good reason for getting an HIV test: what we know about the powerful health-protecting and transmission-preventing benefits of today's effective HIV treatments that suppress HIV viral loads to undetectable levels. Approximately 500 people in Ingham County are living with HIV.

HEALTH Minister Terrence Deyalsingh told the Senate the Government provides "free testing and treatment to everybody with HIV and AIDS".

Staff at the three centres will be able to guide people who test positive toward local resources that can help them with their mental, physical and emotional health. "Ultimately, the goal of a strong public-health strategy is a reduction in disease, alongside long-term health-care sustainability". Matrix Human Services is doing its part to ensure metro Detroiters are tested and aware of NHTD, by hosting a Client Appreciation Day Thursday June 28 from 9-8 p.m.at the Matrix MAC Health in Ferndale (429 Livernois 48220). He says people at high risk of contracting the virus should be tested once a year.

"I am a person living with HIV, I'm not just HIV positive", said Michael Lamb.

Edmonton also doesn't offer rapid testing, a test which draws a small amount of blood and gives a result in 60 seconds.

Trump also promoted HIV testing by pointing out new medications are helping people with HIV/AIDS "live longer and healthier lives". It's important to know whether or not you have it. While great progress has been made in prevention and treating HIV, there is still much to do. The most common ways are from unprotected sex, intravenous drug use, or at birth.

People who are unable to visit one of the testing events, can make an appointment by calling 616-632-7171.

Testing is available through private healthcare providers.
