It’s National HIV Testing Week! 

The AIDS Network is proud to be participating in this years International Testing Week, presented by our friends at the Canadian AIDS Society (CAS)! Through modern treatment, people living with HIV can live long and healthy lives, but you gotta know your status, and the only way to know is to get tested! 

Beginning this summer, The AIDS Network has been partnered with GetaKit to help get home tests into the hands of people who need them, and this International Testing Week we are taking our show on the road, helping folks to register to get kits sent to them, answering any questions you might have, we even have a limited number of kits on-hand to give out to folks to whom having them sent by mail might present a barrier.
