20th Annual HIV Testing Day

Posted By on Thu, Jun 26, 2014 at 9:00 AM

The Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF) is participating in the 20th Annual HIV Testing Day, a nationwide campaign urging people to get tested to learn if they are infected with the HIV virus.

Testing will be available at the SAAF main office as well as at other locations throughout Tucson (see listing below). HIV testing is free and confidential. The testing procedure is a HIV rapid test that produces results in 15 minutes. SAAF is partnering with Walgreens, the Tucson Indian Center, and Wingspan in this community-wide call for HIV testing.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that more than one million people are living with HIV in the United States. The CDC recommends that all Americans, ages 13–64, be routinely tested for HIV as part of their regular health care practice. In Pima County, more than 1,000 people are believed to be infected and unaware of it. The only sure way to know if you are HIV-infected is to be tested.
