Today is National Transgender HIV Testing Day!

 

UntitledAccording to AIDS.gov:

“National Transgender HIV Testing Day is a day to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing, status awareness and continued focus on HIV prevention and treatment efforts among transgender and gender non-binary people. The initiative encourages community-based organizations, health jurisdictions and HIV prevention programs to host local transgender HIV testing community events and/or develop trans-specific HIV testing campaign materials and resources.”
