HIV/AIDS Resources

In honor of World AIDS Day today, I thought I would share some resources relating to HIV/AIDS. HIV is more prevalent now than ever before: over 1.1 million people in the US have HIV, and 20% of people who have HIV don’t even know they have it. These numbers are startling, but this is a problem we can fix.  Please take a look at these websites to help keep yourself and others safe:

Where to get tested (UK)

Note: Getting tested for HIV is extremely easy, and in many cases very cheap, if not free. You don’t even have to get your blood drawn: you swab the inside of your mouth, and then you get your result in 10 minutes. It could not be simpler: you have no excuse not to get tested.
