World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988.
AIDS is life threatening, but if HIV is caught early and is treated, it will not lead to AIDS. If HIV is caught late, it can lead to more
complications and could ultimately lead to AIDS. That is why it is so important to get tested early if you have been at risk of HIV,
as it will mean that you can access treatment that will prevent you ever getting AIDS.
Morgan County Health Department offers testing for HIV as well as other sexually transmitted diseases. For more information contact Jacquie at 217-245-5111.
Need testing? Free STD/HIV testing available.
