The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1 million Americans are living with HIV or AIDS and more than one in five do not know it. If you do not know your HIV status, you should seek a test immediately. According to the CDC, one in 16 black men will be diagnosed with HIV at some point in his lifetime, as will one in 30 black women. There are many places that offer free and low-cost confidential testing. Visit www.hivtest.org or call 1-800-CDC-INFORMATION.
