One in five Americans living with HIV doesn't know it. The only way to know your status is to get tested.

Did you know that:

  • more than 10,000 Mississippians are living with HIV?
  • about 70% of those are African-American — approximately 7,500 cases?
  • about 40% of all cases are among 25-29 year olds?

What can you do about it?

The only way to know your status is to get tested.

HIV is a sexually transmitted disease. If you are not in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested, get tested now.

Testing is private, confidential and affordable by appointment at any county health department in Mississippi — today and every day. Or check with your doctor or health care provider to arrange testing.
