SPREAD THE WORD, NOT THE VIRUS: KNOW YOUR HIV STATUS

Did you know that every 9.5 minutes someone in the United States is infected with HIV?1

Unfortunately, many of those infected will not be diagnosed in the early phase of the disease -- when they are most contagious -- and may unknowingly spread the virus to others.2 In fact,
more than half of new sexually transmitted HIV cases are due to transmission of the virus from people who are unaware that they are infected.3

Diagnosing HIV in its earliest stages and early management of the virus are essential to living a full, high-quality life and to slowing the spread of HIV.4 Knowing your status by getting tested helps you make decisions about your health and can allow you to help prevent the spread of the virus to your partner. It is critical that you talk to your doctor about the most accurate and appropriate testing options available for you.

Our special guest, Ms Penelope Jones, a contractor with VHD to distribute condomns will talk more on this subject and the "Know Your HIV Status" campaign.
