Take the train? Take the test!
In 2015, Latinx accounted for nearly one-third of all new HIV diagnoses in NYC. National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day is a day to increase awareness about how HIV impacts the Latinx community and what we need to do to end the spread of HIV.
This is also a day of action. Over 55 New York Knows community partners, led by the NYC Health Department, will provide free HIV testing and educational resources throughout NYC on Friday, Oct. 13 between noon and 6 p.m.
If you take the train, make sure you take the test! Stop by one of the 35 subway stations across NYC to get your free HIV test.
On Friday, Oct. 13 between noon and 6 p.m., find free HIV testing at subways stations, mobile testing vans and other events throughout the city!
