National HIV Testing Day (NHTD): June 27

Today is National HIV Testing Day!

According to, June 27 is an annual observance to promote HIV testing. The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) founded the day in 1995 and continues to be the leader for this observance.

There are many facilities that offer free testing, so there is no reason not to know your status. Get up, go out and get tested!
