National HIV Testing Week USA
June 21 to June 27 are the dates for the first
ever National HIV Testing Week for the US.
National HIV Testing Week USA provides an
unprecedented opportunity for partners
(community based organizations, healthcare
organizations and providers, other healthcare
professionals, advocates and policy makers)
across the US to unite for one week to help more
people become aware of their HIV status and to
encourage those who know their HIV status and
are not in regular HIV medical care to start a
discussion about treatment. Twenty national
organizations have agreed to partner in
sponsoring this outreach effort and we hope that
the success of National HIV Testing Week USA
will engage everyone in conversations about
getting tested for HIV, getting treated for HIV
and preventing HIV transmission.
Resources for the National HIV Testing Week
range of materials and resources have been
developed to support testing week activities.
They can be downloaded from the National HIV
testing Week materials section to support you
with future activities. In the Get
involvedsection you will find examples of
effective testing initiatives to help inspire
you with ideas about what you can do to
encourage more people to get tested for HIV. We
hope that you find them useful. You can also
share your own examples in the Upload materials
to share section.
