April 18, 2019 is National Transgender HIV Testing Day
April 18, 2019 is National Transgender HIV Testing Day. The latest Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data shows that newly diagnosed HIV rates for transgender people are 3 times the national average. Get tested for HIV. Stop stalling and get tested to stay healthy. Transgender women, especially transgender women of color, are at increased risk for HIV. Find out your HIV status so that you can live a long and healthy life.
The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of a healthy routine.
