Observe HIV Testing Day June 27th

Today, in honor of National HIV Testing Day, the Morgan County Health Department  encourages you to get tested for HIV. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes AIDS.

The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. Many people with HIV donít have any symptoms. In the United States, 1 in 8 people living with HIV donít know they have it.

Even if you donít feel sick, getting early treatment for HIV is important. Early treatment can help you live a longer, healthier life. Treatment can also make it less likely that you will pass HIV on to other people.

Am I at risk for HIV?

HIV is spread through some of the bodyís fluids, like blood, semen (cum), vaginal fluids, and breast milk. HIV is passed from one person to another by:
Having sex (vaginal, anal, or oral) without a condom or dental dam with a person who has HIV
Sharing needles with someone who has HIV
Breastfeeding, pregnancy, or childbirth if the mother has HIV
Getting a transfusion of blood thatís infected with HIV (very rare in the United States)

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010, insurance plans must cover HIV testing. Talk to your insurance company to learn more. Free HIV Testing is also available at the health department. Call for more information or appointment times.
