1 in 7 Are Living with HIV and Don’t Know It

June 27 is National HIV Testing Day – a day to get the facts, get tested, and get involved! The 2018 theme is "Test Your Way. Do It Today."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that about 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV, and 1 in 7 of them don’t know it. Currently there are approximately 1,912 people living with HIV in Ohio’s Region 7 which includes Butler, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Warren Counties. The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. People between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV yearly.

HIV is spread from one person to another by:

  • Having anal, vaginal, or oral sex without a condom, with a person who has HIV. HIV can be passed through blood, vaginal fluid, and semen.
  • Sharing needles, syringes, or other injection equipment with a person who has HIV.
  • Through pregnancy, birth, or breastfeeding from women who have HIV.

Testing is the first step to finding out if you have HIV. If you have HIV, getting medical care and taking medicines regularly helps you to have a healthier life and lowers the chances of passing HIV on to others.

The HIV/AIDS Prevention Committee of Region 7 is urging everyone to get tested!
