"Planned Parenthood is committed to preventing HIV through education and confidential HIV testing," said Kim Atkins, CEO of PPMH. "HIV testing and diagnosis are critical for connecting people to the treatment that will keep them healthy and prevent the further spread of HIV to partners. One of five people infected with HIV in the U.S. today still do not know their status. Come to a PPMH center and get tested today.”
