World AIDS DAY -- December 1

World AIDS DAY -- December 1

Did you know that more than 1.2 million people are living with HIV in the U.S., yet almost 1 in 8 do not know that they are infected? Routine HIV screening helps get HIV positive Veterans into treatment, improving their health outcomes and reducing the potential for the virus to be transmitted to others.

World AIDS Day is December 1 -- the perfect time to talk about getting tested for HIV and, for those with HIV, getting and staying in care.

Read the resources below and help us promote World AIDS Day. Together, we can increase HIV testing rates and decrease the spread of AIDS.
