National HIV Testing Day

                   National HIV Testing Day


From the Desk of Tishawn Marie

On June 27, 2015, in honor of National HIV Testing Day, Celestial Caring Enterprises and our client, Essence Bestselling Author, Tia Hines encourages you to get tested for HIV.  HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) that causes AIDS.

The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested.  Many people with HIV don’t have any symptoms.  In the United States, 1 in 7 people living with HIV don’t know they have it.

Even if you don’t feel sick, getting early treatment for HIV is important.  Early treatment can help you live a longer, healthier life.  Treatment can also make it less likely that you will pass HIV on to other people. 

Am I at risk for HIV?

 HIV is spread through some of the body fluids, semen (cum), vaginal fluids, and breast milk.  HIV is passed from one person to another by:
  • Having sex (vaginal, anal, or oral) without a condom or dental dam with a person who has HIV.
  • Sharing needles with someone who has HIV.
  • Breastfeeding, pregnancy, or childbirth, if the mother has HIV.
  • Getting a transfusion of blood that’s infected with HIV (very rare in the United States.)
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010, insurance plans must cover HIV testing.  Talk to your insurance company to learn more.
Free HIV testing is also available at some testing centers and health clinics.
