In the mood for Netflix & chill?
Well, you and your partner better get tested and know your HIV status, first! If you're "doing it," you need to be doing it (getting tested, that is). Today is National HIV Testing Day, a day to get the facts, and get tested.
Around 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and one in eight people don't know they have it. Nearly 45,000 people find out they have HIV every year.
HIV testing is the gateway to prevention and care. 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.
Not knowing you have HIV means you can unknowingly spread the virus, and it also means being unaware of the fact you need treatment. The earlier you start treating HIV, the better your quality of life will be.
So, if you're scared to get tested because you're afraid you might be positive, consider how much scarier it is to have HIV and not be treating it. GO GET TESTED TODAY!
Wishing everyone peace, love, and safe sex. ✌️❤👉👌
