One of the main purposes of National Women/Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is to encourage women to take a proactive approach in their sexual health. One of the biggest ways that you can do so is to know your status. Nowadays, many health organizations offer HIV/AIDS testing at little to no cost to individuals, and some places even offer rapid and/or needle-free testing.
If you don’t know where your nearest testing center is, you can always visit HIVTest.org. On this website, you can enter your zip code for your nearest testing site, and also find answers to any questions that you may have about HIV testing in general!
