Free HIV Tests* at Health Department on June 27

Posted on June 25th, 2014

National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is an annual campaign to encourage people of all ages to “Take the Test, Take Control.”

Too many people don’t know they have HIV. In the United States, nearly 1.1 million people are living with HIV, and one in six don’t know they are infected. Getting tested is the first step to finding out if you have HIV. If you have HIV, getting medical care and taking medicines regularly helps you live a longer, healthier life and also lowers the chances of passing HIV on to others.

All Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Centers will offer free HIV testing* on Friday, June 27.   Locate the center nearest you and check their hours of operation.

(Please note that the Newton County Health Center will close at 3 pm on Friday, June 27.)

*While test kits last.
