National HIV Testing Campaign

Doing it My Way, Testing for HIV

For National HIV Testing Day on June 27th, learn more about getting tested.

Campaign Description

VA is the largest single provider of HIV care in the United States, and provided care to over 31,000 Veterans with HIV in 2018. However, only 44 percent of Veterans in our care have been tested for HIV. We encourage HIV testing at least once for every Veteran, and more frequently for those with risk factors.

Earlier this year, the President announced a plan to end HIV during the State of the Union Address and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) subsequently released an ambitious plan to do so. We invite you to watch the video address from Dr. Stone, Executive in Charge, VHA, below as he addresses VA providers and describes VA's efforts towards this goal. This includes making sure all Veterans in our care are offered testing at least once, and offering PrEP, a medication that can prevent HIV, to Veterans at high risk.
