Public Health to Offer Rapid HIV Testing at Restoration Urban Ministries

In the United States, half of all new HIV infections occur in people under age 25; one-fourth in people under the age of 21.

June 27th is National HIV Testing Day. The goal of National HIV Testing Day is to encourage you to know your HIV status by participating in an anonymous or confidential HIV testing program.

HIV counseling and testing helps people with HIV take steps to protect their own health and that of their partners, and helps people who test negative get the information they need to stay uninfected.
