It is important to know how HIV is spread and to know your HIV status. Knowledge is power: knowing your status is the first step toward early treatment, and knowing your status will help protect individuals to whom you might transmit the virus. Getting tested is what you can do to fight HIV/AIDS, but remember that you are not alone.
If you think you may be at risk for infection, you can find an HIV testing center by using the AIDS.gov Locator: simply enter your ZIP code at the upper right corner of the page. You can also text your ZIP code to KNOWIT (566948 ) to find a testing center near you.
