Free HIV Testing

National Black HIV/AIDs Awareness Day 

To raise awareness for Black HIV/AIDs Awareness Day, PPSENFL will be offering free HIV testing at any of our open health centers on Tuesday, February, 7, 2023.  

National HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), which was first observed in 1999, is a day to acknowledge how HIV disproportionately affects Black people. Due to racism and discrimination in the health care system, this affects where Black people can seek or receive HIV prevention services.  

Make your appointment with your local PPSENFL health center via the link below, or call 1-800-230-PLAN.

Getting tested is the only way to find out if you have HIV. HIV tests are recommended for all adults. HIV tests are quick, painless, and on Tuesday, February 7th, 2022, its free.

Testing is a good idea if you’ve had unprotected sex or if your partner tests positive for HIV. You should also get tested if you’ve shared needles with anybody (for shooting drugs, piercings, or tattoos). If you’re pregnant, get tested for HIV at your first prenatal visit.

Luckily, HIV testing is pretty easy and painless. The best part about getting tested for HIV? Once you get it over with, it can really put your mind at ease. And if you DO have HIV, it’s best to find out right away so you can take medicines to help you stay healthy and lower your chances of spreading HIV to others.
