National HIV Testing Day is tomorrow, Wednesday 27th June. According to the Straight:
“While approximately 75,000 Canadians are living with HIV, one in five HIV–positive Canadians aren’t aware of their status. New HIV infections in Canada increased in 2016 by 11.6 percent (or 2,344 new cases) from the previous year.”
As part of a national campaign to improve awareness, REACH Medical Centre at 1145 Commercial Drive will be offering free HIV testing between 4:-00 pm and 8:00pm tomorrow.
