“Doing It My Way” GET TESTED
There’s Never Been a Better Time to Know Your Status.
June 27 is National HIV Testing Day! AIDS Care Ocean State encourages everyone to get an HIV test! National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is an annual observance to encourage people of all ages to get tested for HIV and to know their status.
An estimated 1.1 million people in the United States have HIV, including about 162,500 (14%, or 1 in 7) people who do not know they have it.
CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People with specific risk factors should get tested at least once a year.
To celebrate this important day, AIDS Care Ocean State's Prevention Team will be giving free, anonymous, rapid HIV tests at Walgreens (533 Elmwood Ave, Cranston, RI) from 10 AM to 7 PM. No appointment necessary.
AIDS Care Ocean State offers free, anonymous, rapid HIV testing, along with Syphilis and Hepatitis C tests at our BroadMed facility. We also provide information on prevention and treatment of Sexually Transmitted Infections, PrEP, and services that are available to people who are both HIV Positive and HIV Negative.
Our facility is located at 577 Broad Street, Providence, RI, and offers testing from Monday to Thursday. Times vary. Visit our Prevention Page to learn more. If you have HIV, start HIV medical care and treatment as soon as possible. Staying in HIV medical care can keep you healthy and help protect others. AOCS is always here for you!
