HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

national-gay-mens-day

September 27 is the annual observance of the National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

The focus of the day is to bring awareness to the growing issue of HIV/AIDS in the gay community while motivating individuals to get tested and attain services.

According to the centers for Disease Control, 34% of gay or bisexual men living with HIV don’t know. Moreover, one in five gay men in major U.S. cities is HIV positive. Nearly half don’t know it. It doesn’t have to be this way. Let’s bring HIV out of the closet this National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, September 27. YOU NEED TO KNOW, TOO!

According to one resident from Broward County who had an experience with one of Care Resource’s mobile testing vans, “One night while the Care Resource testing truck was out doing HIV testing in Broward, I consulted with a testing counselor about my needs. The Counselor then got together with a peer navigator at the Oakland Park office and the two of them worked in tandem to get me the doctor I wanted and a case manager as well. The Counselor even emailed me the forms so I would be ready when I came to the office for my appointment. Your staff is more than dedicated to their job. I wanted to point out that if there were more people in healthcare like you guys, things would be a lot better for HIV patients. I am very grateful for the help I received and wanted to commend you for your efforts.”
