Testing For National HIV Testing Day

One in five people living with H.I.V. in the United States is unaware s/he is living with the disease. To help encourage Americans to get tested National HIV Testing day has been set for June 27.

"HIV remains a devastating disease, but it is preventable and most cases treatable," reminds Dr. Jason Eberhart-Phillips, KDHE State Health Officer and Director of the Division of Health. "Knowing your status is imperative in curtailing the transmission of HIV."

In 2008, 106 Kansans reportedly became infected with HIV, according to the KDHE. The CDC estimattes 56,300 new infections occur each year, or one approximately every nine and a half minutes.
