National HIV Testing Day is a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment. The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested at least once. People at higher risk should get tested more often. Getting tested helps keep you and your partner healthy.

Strategies like abstinence (not having sex), limiting sexual partners, never sharing needles, and using condoms when you have sex can help prevent HIV. Using a male or female condom every time you have sex can decrease the chance of getting HIV and protect you from other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like gonorrhea and chlamydia.

For more information, visit the CDC's website here or find more from the Shiawassee County Health Department here.
