World AIDS Day Rockland

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

 

NEW CITY – The annual World AIDS Day event in Rockland will be held on Thursday, December 1st from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. at Quisqueya Sports Club, located at 25 Broadway in Haverstraw.

Rapid HIV testFree, private and rapid HIV testing will be available and you will receive your test results in 20 minutes.

Come learn the facts about HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) – the virus that can lead to AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Find out how HIV is spread, how it can be prevented, and the different services available for people with HIV or AIDS and their families.

“The World AIDS Day event in Rockland is a good chance to learn more about HIV and AIDS, get your questions answered, and get tested,” said County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert.

The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Often, people are not aware that they are infected, as you can have HIV and still feel healthy. It is important to get tested so you don’t pass the infection to others. Many doctors and public health institutions, like the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the AIDS Institute, recommend testing of everyone between ages 13 – 64. How often you get tested depends on your risk for HIV infection. Get tested regularly if you are sexually active or an IV drug user. If you have HIV, early treatment can help you live a longer, healthier life. You can also take steps to protect other people.

HIV testing is especially important for pregnant women. An infected mother can pass HIV to her child during pregnancy, childbirth, or through breastfeeding. If you are pregnant and have HIV, treatment is available for your own health and to prevent passing HIV to your baby.

The World AIDS Day event in Rockland is sponsored by the Health Department’s Infectious Disease Program. Call the Health Department at 845-364-2570 to find out about other places in Rockland where you can get tested for HIV. You can also call the toll-free New York State Department of Health AIDS hotline at 1-800-541-AIDS to schedule a free HIV test.
