World AIDS Day is observed each year on December 1, yet it has been more than 30 years since the first cases of AIDS were reported in the U.S. HIV is still a reality for more than a million Americans.
This year's World AIDS Day theme is "Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-Free Generation." To take action for the day, we encourage you to find an HIV test near you and take the test - it's quick, easy, and often free.
Knowing your HIV status means taking care of yourself and others. You can find HIV testing sites and other services near you with the AIDS.gov HIV Testing Sites & Care Services Locator.
