Each June 27, National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) encourages people of all ages to get tested for HIV. Chicago has a vibrant network of testing sites at which you can #KnowYourStatus; plus, many of them are also beneficaries of AIDS Run & Walk Chicago's CommunityDirect program! 

Here are two things you can do on National HIV Testing Day to build health equity in Chicago:

  1. Make an appointment to get tested at one of our CommunityDirect partner sites. HIV tests are quick and confidential and give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your HIV status. Find your nearest testing site on the map above!
  2. Register for AIDS Run & Walk Chicago to help those CommunityDirect partners (and many more) raise funds to continue their vital work preventing new cases of HIV.

In Illinois, HIV testing sites need your support to keep doing their vital work. New data shows that the number of HIV tests performed in Illinois decreased by nearly 9% from 2014-2016, resulting in the identification of 245 fewer people with HIV, thanks to the devaststing state budget impasse.
