Not Enough Folks Are Getting Swabbed

The only way to know for sure if you are HIV-positive is to get tested, but not enough of us do. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 250,000 Americans who have HIV and just don’t know. National HIV Testing Day aims at trying to encourage more people to get tested.
