World AIDS Day this Friday

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 by Katy McElroy

World AIDS Day has been on Dec. 1 every year since 1988 and provides an opportunity for our community to raise awareness, give support to those who are currently living with HIV or struggling with AIDS-related illness, and mourn those who lost the fight. There are currently 4,000 people living with HIV in Travis County. A vigilant commitment to protection and prevention is an important part of the fight against HIV infection. This Friday, Austin Public Health will be providing free testing for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases at two locations: Walgreens at 1144 Airport Blvd. from 5-9 p.m. and Midtown Live Sports Cafe at 7408 Cameron Road from 4-7 p.m. No appointment is needed.
