With the alarming facts emerging concerning HIV in Alabama, it goes without saying that everyone needs to know his or her status.

This has multiple benefits:

  • Knowing your status enables you to seek proper treatment if necessary.
  • It decreases the likelihood of an infected person unknowingly passing the virus to another person.
  • Your status is good information to share with your partner, especially if it's a new relationship.  With this in mind, you can decide how to proceed.

But let's face it, sometimes we just don't want to go to our regular doctors to obtain some information.  We'd rather someone we don't know and may not ever see again deliver the news if results aren't in our favor.

If you fall into this category but still want to know your status, there are numerous places in the state of Alabama where you may be tested for HIV presence in your body.

With so many free testing sites across the state, there is no excuse for anyone to be ignorant of his status. Now is the perfect time for a person who is unsure to make the first step towards making sure he neither contracts nor passes along HIV.
