Tyler clinic offered free testing for National HIV Testing Day

Lynette PayneJun 28, 2018

Two other other organizations in Jackson offer free HIV testing all year.

Everyone tested will receive a free Meijer gift card while supplies last. "What many do not know is that with the right medication, HIV can become undetectable in lab tests. It shows that they are providing attention to HIV". "It's important that people know their status". That knowledge allows you to make decisions and take actions that give you control over your health.

People with HIV are living longer and healthier lives, thanks to improved treatments. These could include people who use needle distribution services and those who don't have access to health-care services.

It's National HIV Testing Day and the city celebrates by offering free and fast check-ups today! Or they may not want to go to that HIV clinic because they may feel stigmatized walking in. "Having a sexually transmitted disease increases a person's risk of contracting HIV three-to-five times if they are exposed".

Plus, medication such as PrEP, pre-exposure prophylaxis, is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at substantial risk of getting it to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. "People between the ages of 20 and 29 received more than a third of those diagnoses". HIV Prevention Intern Maggie Kline says at the end of 2017, Tippecanoe County had about 190 people living with HIV. Rapid testing with oral swabs is simple and easy. It can reinforce the steps that they've taken to avoid HIV infection and provide peace of mind. It's estimated that one in seven people do not know they have HIV.

HIV and AIDS remain a persistent problem in the United States and around the world.

"The stigmas that have been associated with HIV have made people not come forward to test", said Dr. Nnamdi Ndubuka, medical health officer with the Northern Intertribal Health Authority. HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and the Health Center Program can help you get the care and treatment you need and help you find a local provider.
