Did you know that nearly a quarter of Americans living with HIV don’t even know they have it? And what’s even more shocking is that, according to the Greater Than AIDS campaign, more than 500,000 of those people are Black Americans. The time to know your status and get tested is now, and what better time to do it than today — Wednesday, June 27 — National HIV Testing Day?
Greater Than AIDS works to fight against these alarming statistics and, this year the organization teamed up with a few Hollywood names to promote testing day activities. In this new video, Jason George, Nadine Ellis, Jessie Williams, Naturi Naughton and Dennis Haysbert use their star power to spread the word.
Watch this video to learn more about National HIV Testing day and information on how to update your status today.
