First observed on June 27, 1995, National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment.
The 2020 theme -- “Knowing” -- focuses on knowing’s one HIV status, and recognizes new ways to take an HIV test, and reflects that we can continue the momentum toward Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.
“Knowing” can mean knowing about treatment options and understanding prevention options, including PrEP, which is available through the Ready Set PrEP Program.
