National HIV Testing Day, is observed in June and sponsored by AIDS.gov/Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy (OHAIDP).
National HIV Testing Day is a day to get the facts, get tested, and get involved! More than 90% of new HIV infections in the United States could be prevented by testing and diagnosing people living with HIV and making sure they receive early, ongoing treatment.
Around 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and one in eight people do not know they have it. Nearly 45,000 people find out they have HIV every year. People who test positive can take HIV medicines that can keep them healthy for many years and greatly reduce their chance of passing HIV to others.
