NATIONAL HIV TESTING WEEK 2019

National HIV Testing Week (9).png

National HIV Testing Day is June 27th, but we are planning a FULL WEEK of events to celebrate!

We’ll be out in the community providing free HIV and STI tests, distributing safer sex supplies, and smashing stigma at every turn. The theme of our week-long event series is UNITED & EQUAL! We will be highlighting our “HIV Equal” approach to HIV prevention and testing. No matter your status, we all have roles to play in reducing the stigma and spread of HIV through PrEP, U=U, and building a strong, united community. Now’s your chance to join us—we can’t wait to see you there! Also, be sure to stop by our big Wrap-Up event at Stacy’s @ Melrose to finish off the week!
