“An estimated 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV, and yet one out of five doesn’t know it,” said health commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler. “To find out your status, there are plenty of places in Westchester that offer free testing on a regular basis, like our health department clinics. The test is quick, simple and readily available, so there’s no excuse not to get one.”

The Westchester County Department of Health provides free, confidential rapid HIV tests routinely at its HIV and STD clinics. For more information, go to www.westchestergov.com/health and click on the clinic schedules link on the left.

WAVE works with more than 230 member agencies throughout the state to promote HIV counseling, testing and referrals.
