Second in the Nation for HIV

downloadDid you know that Florida is third in the nation for number of people diagnosed with AIDS and second in the nation for HIV? The numbers are astounding and it’s not just a concern for our youth. In the United States 79% of people with AIDS are over the age of 40.

The CDC recommends that all adults in the United States get tested for HIV infection at least once, regardless of risk factors for HIV infection, and with repeat HIV tests if there is an ongoing risk of HIV infection.

Today, as a part of National HIV Testing Day, there will be Free HIV testing sites available in Marion County.
