National HIV Testing Day


June 27th is National HIV Testing Day!

Do you know your status? When was the last time you had an HIV test? If you’re not sure, it’s time to find out. Whether you get a free, confidential HIV test on June 27th or set up an appointment that works for your schedule with HVCS’ staff, knowing your HIV status is vitally important.

To find out more about HVCS’ testing options, and if you’re at risk for HIV infection, visit our HIV testing page.

To mark National HIV Testing Day, the Westchester County Health Department and its Project WAVE (War Against the Virus Escalating) partners will offer free, rapid HIV tests on Friday, June 27, at the following locations:

“An estimated 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV, and yet one out of five doesn’t know it,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler. “To find out your status, there are plenty of places in Westchester that offer free testing on a regular basis, like our Health Department clinics. The test is quick, simple and readily available, so there’s no excuse not to get one.”

The Westchester County Department of Health provides free, confidential, rapid HIV tests routinely at its HIV and STD clinics.

WAVE works with more than 230 member agencies throughout the state to promote HIV counseling, testing and referrals.
