Know Your Status

March 10th marks National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls and highlighting the importance of getting tested to know your status.

HIV/AIDS continues to be a significant health issue, with women and girls accounting for a growing proportion of new HIV diagnoses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 in 5 people living with HIV in the United States are women.

Getting tested for HIV is a crucial step in protecting your health and the health of your loved ones. Knowing your status allows you to take control of your health and seek the necessary care and support if you test positive. Early detection and treatment can help you live a long and healthy life with HIV.

Missouri Highlands Health Care is committed to supporting our community in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We offer free resources and services to help individuals get tested and access care. Through our website, www.mohigh.org/hiv, you can learn more about our free at-home tests and condoms, ensuring that everyone has access to the tools they need to protect themselves and their partners.

This National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, take charge of your health and get tested. Knowing your status is the first step towards a healthier future.
