City of El Paso Offering Free HIV Testing
The City of El Paso will be offering HIV testing on National HIV Testing Day to El Paso residents free of cost.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: An estimated 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV, including about 162,500 people who are unaware of their status. Approximately 40% of new HIV infections are transmitted by people who are living with undiagnosed HIV. For those who are living with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and reducing the spread of HIV.
The test takes only a few minutes and gives either a positive or negative result and is available to anyone whether or not they currently have insurance or income. The test is completely confidential and will offer rapid HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis C testing.
