June 27th 2007 – Get tested for HIV – National HIV Testing Day

National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is an annual campaign produced by the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA-US) to encourage at-risk individuals to receive voluntary HIV counseling and testing. NAPWA distributes campaign kits to community groups and health departments of all sizes to help create NHTD campaigns and events targeting their local communities.

Your first resource for National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is the NAPWA website. You can order more copies of its posters and flyers, link to the CDC’s database of voluntary HIV counseling and testing locations throughout the U.S., and download campaign materials to adapt and use. Please come back to the website throughout your campaign.

“Founded in 1983, the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA-US) is the oldest coalition of people living with HIV/AIDS in the world and the oldest U.S. national AIDS organization. We advocate on behalf of all people living with HIV and AIDS in order to end the pandemic and human suffering caused by HIV/AIDS. HIV-positive people have a unique role to play in HIV prevention and promotion of voluntary HIV counseling and testing. This is the tenth year of National HIV Testing Day.” – NAPWA

For questions about NHTD contact NAPWA via email: nhtd@napwa.org. Kits, posters and fact sheets as well as other resources and materials are available on their website. For other materials and information you may also call the CDC’s National Prevention Information Network at 1-800-458-5231.
