June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, and HIV West Yellowhead encourages everyone to live healthier and safer lives by knowing your status. It is estimated that 25% of the approximately 71,300 Canadians living with HIV are unaware of their infection.

FREE and CONFIDENTIAL testing for HIV and sexually transmitted infections is available at Community Health Services on June 27. Call 780-723-4421 to book an appointment any time.

It is your choice to have an HIV test, you must ask for one or give consent to be tested. Talk to your health care provider before having the test if you have any concerns or questions about the HIV test or your HIV test result. The standard test is a simple blood test that tells you whether or not you have HIV within one to two weeks. Test results are confidential so they are not shared with anyone outside the health profession. The medical officer of health in your health authority and Alberta Health and Wellness are notified of positive test results
