Today marks the 19th year NHTD and there is more reason than ever to get tested. If you negative, you can work to stay negative. If you test positive, you can work to stay healthy and protect yourself and others.
Today the end of the epidemic really is in sight. We know now that people receiving "effective" treatment with drug cocktails - fully suppressing viral replication - aren't just living longer. They also have radically less risk of sharing their infections with others. In theory, we can test and treat our way out of this!
But today TOO many persons are living with HIV today don't know it. We have to reach them! NHTD is more important than ever - the "silent infected" and everyone living in hot spots of undetected and untreated HIV need to know their status
We lost SO many loved ones to this epidemic! We owe it to them to make things change and the first step is to know your HIV status.
