WORLD AIDS DAY

World AIDS Day is celebrated each year on December 1 to raise awareness of the global impact of HIV/AIDS.  The U.S. government’s theme for World AIDS Day 2016 is “Leadership, Commitment, Impact.”  In 2016, we know what it takes to prevent HIV infections and improve the lives of people living with HIV, and we continue to build on the White House’s National HIV/AIDS Strategy: Updated to 2020.  For information on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy as well as other information on HIV/AIDS, go to www.AIDS.gov .

One in six people in the US do not know they are infected with HIV.  The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) ensures improved access to testing without co pays or deductibles.  For those who know they are infected, the comprehensive coverage establishes a set of benefits that must be covered for chronic diseases like HIV/AIDS.  Contact your medical provider or The Oneida County Health Department for your HIV testing options.

World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and remember those who have died.

How will you be a leader, show commitment and make an impact this year?
