National HIV Testing Day

Published: June 3, 2020

June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, an annual occasion to encourage people to get an HIV test. CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People at higher risk should get tested more often.

Due to social distancing guidelines, MAO’s National Testing Day events remain pending; however, that does not mean you cannot or should not get tested.

Call (800) 510-4704 and a member of our team will work with you to get you in and tested.

If you know you are living with HIV, select the option for the Clinic and ask to speak with the Patient Intake Specialist. Allow us to help you manage your HIV and the supports you need to live the best quality of life.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.1 million people in the United States have HIV. For people with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and reducing the spread of HIV.

Learn about PrEP as prevention when you call or when you get tested for HIV.
