STDTestExpress Highlights National HIV Testing Day with Free HIV Testing
Date:6/22/2010

Site encourages all Americans to take control of their sexual health and spread the word about HIV prevention.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 22, 2010 -- STDTestExpress, a service dedicated to educating and testing people for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), announces today they will offer a free HIV test with the purchase of an 8 Test Panel – a savings of $50. The promotion, offered in conjunction with National HIV Testing Day, begins on June 28, one day after HIV Testing Day, and runs through July 3.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one million people are estimated to be living with HIV in the United States. Of those, 200,000 people don't know that they are HIV positive. The goal of National HIV Testing Day is to combat this trend by encouraging people to get screened.

STDTestExpress is an innovative service that takes healthcare direct to the consumer, linking users with a lab in their area and confidentially providing results within a few days. To receive the free HIV test, consumers can log on to http://www.stdtestexpress.com/hiv-testing-day or call 888-215-9543, select the 8 Test Panel and then visit one of 1,800 Test Centers across the country for a quick 15 minute visit. Within three days, results are ready and doctors are available by phone for a free consult if the results are positive.

“There are thousands of newly acquired cases of HIV every year, and one of the ways we can combat that is though HIV and STD Testing,” said Michelle Sobel, co-founder of Analyte Media, publisher of STDTestExpress.com. “Services like ours make it easy, convenient and affordable for people to take control of their health, get tested and help protect themselves and others against the spread of HIV and other STDs.”

National HIV Testing Day was started in 1995 by The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) in an effort to encourage routine HIV-testing. Every year on June 27, NAPWA works with community-based organizations, businesses, health departments, elected officials, media, and individuals across the nation to promote testing and early diagnosis of HIV.
