Know Where You Stand and Your Status: Your Power Over HIV

Did you know that there are approximately 11,000 people known to be living with HIV/AIDS in Colorado? And, what’s more- this number only reflects those aware of their infection, not the fact that 1 in 5 people living with HIV/AIDS are unaware of their status.

Do you know your status? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 18.1% of people aged 13 years and older living with HIV infection do not even know they are infected. Getting tested, and encouraging your partner to get tested is the best way to make sure you are both safe.

Join the nation and find out on National HIV Testing Day, Saturday June 27, 2015. On Friday, June 26th, Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) will offer HIV testing and counseling for no charge. Call 303-239-7078 to make your appointment!

For more information, visit the Jefferson County Public Health website.
