National HIV Testing Day Recognized in North Texas

We have a list of locations and organizations that offer free HIV testing

Thursday is National HIV Testing Day and locations across North Texas are offering free and confidential testing.

Local health officials are using the day as a reminder of the importance of testing and treatment.

The theme this year is "Doing it My Way" which reminds that there are different kinds of tests and locations designed for different schedules and lifestyles.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention data shows that 1.1 million people in the United States have HIV and 1-in-7 people are unaware.

Who should get tested?

The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care and those at high risk get tested at least once a year.
