National HIV Testing Day: Humboldt residents encouraged to get tested

Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio Greater than AIDS and Walgreens drug stores have teamed with the city of Cleveland to offer the screenings Wednesday at the Lee Harvard Shopping Center

"People can live long and normal lives with HIV with effective and free treatment available to them", says the health ministry.

She said the Commission meant to strengthen partnership with chiefs and queen mothers to influence and promote behaviour change through HIV education on modes of transmission and also encourage them to support the Commission's anti-stigma reduction programmes in their communities.

Tom McAulay, vice-chair of the board of directors for the Positive Living Society of B.C., said that the access to PrEP has taken a burden off of the HIV-positive community, for the first time since the epidemic began. We still deal with the mis- and misconceptions of HIV.

Johnathon Fortune, Team Lead with HIV North Society, says they are hoping everyone can go get tested especially those that are disproportionately impacted by the disease. Young people are typically most likely to not know they are HIV positive. No appointments are necessary and the results are available within 20 minutes, according to a release from the Fort Wayne/Allen County Dept. of Health.

One Topeka based non-profit is offering free HIV testing Wednesday. It also offers pre-exposure prophylaxis and post-exposure prophylaxis, which are prevention options for people at high risk of getting HIV.

She said for Ghana to achieve the goal of ending AIDS by 2030, reduce mother-to-child transmission and also reduce new infections, there was the need for traditional leaders to demonstrate more commitment towards the national HIV and AIDS response. In 2015, roughly five out of every 100,000 British Columbians were newly diagnosed with HIV.

"All it is is a little finger prick", said Gigi Robinson with New Horizons, "do a little brush, suck up a little blood, and you'll know your results".

The other program is a statewide PrEP Initative to help prevent the spread of HIV through a drug called Truvada.

The National HIV Testing Day aims to reach individuals at risk of HIV exposure who lack adequate sexual health resources and capacity for HIV testing, including members of the LGBTQ2 community, off-reserve Indigenous communities and people who use drugs.

Local HIV and STD testing providers include the Washtenaw County Health Department, Planned Parenthood, UNIFIED - HIV Health and Beyond, and the Corner Health Center.
