This special email supplies you with resources to communicate on and after National HIV Testing Day (NHTD - June 27). We hope you find these resources useful, whether you’re communicating on behalf of an organization or as a concerned individual. These resources focus on the importance of HIV testing and knowing one’s status, of getting and staying in care, and highlight the place for prevention efforts.

Help Your Audiences to Know Their HIV Status and Get Services

The HIV Testing Sites & Care Services Locator enables anyone to enter their zip code and find nearby HIV testing centers and other health and social services. The link for the locator is HIV testing can be the entryway to health, prevention and care.

You can add this locator to your site. This recently released, and short, video walks you through the three steps to do this. Watch the video, get the widget, and you’re on your way to better serving your audience. By the way, the locator data updates without any more work for you!
