To add meaning to National HIV Testing Day, health officials of North Dakota have been urging people, who have been at risk of HIV that they should get them tested.
The officers were of the view that they have registered 541 cases of HIV in 2011, and are quite sure that the total number would have been much more than being told. They gave such statement on the basis that many people are infected with HIV, but they do not get to know about the same, as they have never get screened for HIV.
This is the reason that they have been asking people to get screened this time, so that their treatment is possible. Health officials were of the view that they have trying their best to assist people and encourage them to come for the tests.
In order to do the same, they have developed a national strategy in which they will offer free HIV tests in different 24 places, which will include not only cities , but as well communities. It has taken $1.2 million to make the program and is expected that things will get better with the test.
"By bringing HIV testing into pharmacies, we believe we can reach more people by making testing more accessible and reduce the stigma associated with HIV", said Dr. Kevin Fenton from CDC.
