National HIV Testing Day 2014

National HIV Testing Day (June 27) serves as an annual reminder to get tested and to help encourage others to get tested.

EVERYONE CAN PLAY A ROLE!

1)  Get Tested!  Make an appointment with your healthcare provider or a community provider. View HIV test sites in Oregon or enter your location in the search field below to find sites near you.

2)  Attend a National HIV Testing Day event.  Find an event near you.

3)  Have conversations about testing with your partner, your friends, and your family.

4)  Use social media to help promote National HIV Testing Day. Send a mass text message. When you get tested, "check in" on Facebook to show others where they can get tested. Post a message on Facebook or Twitter - you can even repost a message from our Facebook or Twitter pages.

WHY IS THIS DAY IMPORTANT?

More than 5,500 people in Oregon have been diagnosed with HIV.  The Oregon Health Authority estimates that at least 1,000 additional Oregonians are undiagnosed, unaware of their infection, and unable to access treatment.  One of the key ways we can fight the epidemic in our state is by making HIV testing a routine practice for everyone ages 15-65.  Read the National HIV Testing Day proclamation signed by Governor Kitzhaber.
