About 1.1 million people in the United States have HIV, according to estimates from Centers for Disease Control. "Share your story", Cayman's week of activities will be aimed at promoting heightened awareness of HIV testing and prevention after the completion and validation of the Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV and Congenital Syphilis, EMTCT.

She said the goal of UNAIDS now, is to have 90 per cent of affected people living, and to achieve this goal, it was important to engage traditional leaders in local communities to partner the GAC and USAID.

Seeley says that CAMP Rehoboth has conducted about 500 tests per year since 2004.

The CDC recommends everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested. Young people are typically most likely to not know they are HIV positive. HSA Health Promotion Officer Therese Prehay says no appointment is necessary at the larger clinics and the waiting time for testing is usually no more than 10 minutes.

The La Salle County Health Department will be offering free HIV oral swab tests from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 27.

Since the start of the program, the drug has been available free of charge for eligible people, including men who have sex with men, transgender women and people in relationships with HIV-positive partners.

However, the location also has an Out of the Closet store, offers free HIV testing and has an AHF Pharmacy in the OTC.

Six months after the B.C. government expanded funding for HIV/AIDS prevention drugs, provincial officials and health care workers are celebrating a wide uptake of the prevention regimens. Humboldt County recently saw a spike in newly diagnosed cases, and the only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested.

HIV-negative individuals are encouraged to use preventative measures to reduce chances of infection. Anyone who ever had sex without a condom might have been exposed to HIV.

"There are more options than ever to prevent and treat HIV", said Tina Hoff, Senior Vice President and Director, Health Communications and Media Partnerships at the Kaiser Family Foundation, which leads Greater Than AIDS.
