In recognition of National HIV Day today, the City of El Paso Department of Public Health’s HIV Prevention Program is offering everyone a chance to take an HIV test for free this week.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)…

Too many people—one in six—who are living with HIV are not aware of it. That means they are not getting the treatment they need to stay healthy and may pass the virus on to others without knowing it.

HIV can be spread when someone with HIV has sex or shares injection drug equipment with someone who does not have HIV. If the partner with HIV is on medicine to treat HIV (antiretroviral therapy, or ART), or the partner who is HIV-negative is on medicine to prevent HIV infection, the risk can be much lower.

This year the City of El Paso Department of Public Health’s HIV prevention program will be offering free and confidential testing all week long and no appointment is necessary.

  • Tuesday, June 24 – Friday, June 27
    5115 El Paso Drive Suite B
    8:00-11:00 a.m. and 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Anyone interested in receiving more information on HIV testing sites is encouraged to call (915) 771-5895.

For more information on the programs and services offered by the Department of Public Health, visit EPHealth.com or dial 2-1-1.
