  • Description:
    NHTD 2010

    Each year, on June 27, the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA), with support from CDC, AIDS.gov, CDC’s National Prevention Information Network (CDC NPIN), and other partners, leads the commemoration of National HIV Testing Day (NHTD). This special edition of Connections is dedicated to NHTD. The theme of this annual observance is “Take the Test, Take Control,” which sends a powerful message about learning one’s HIV status. More than 200,000 Americans infected with HIV do not even know they are infected, maintaining the urgency to take action on the national, state, local, and individual levels. HIV is a serious, infectious, and deadly disease, and knowing one’s status is a critical step to protecting one’s own health and that of others.+++We invite you to participate in CDC’s first-ever Twitter Town Hall with prevention partners on Thursday, June 3, 3–4:30 p.m. EDT. CDC is hosting the event through CDC NPIN, with NAPWA tweeting about testing day big ideas followed by AIDS.gov tweeting about social media. NCHHSTP Director Dr. Kevin Fenton and Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) Director Dr. Jonathan Mermin will tweet early in the program, with a special message from CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden.
