Take the Test, Take Control: World AIDS Day 2007
Date:11/29/2007

nd treatment for World AIDS Day, which is observed each Dec. 1.

"World AIDS Day is a chance for all of us to look back and remember the lives lost to AIDS," Graham says. "But it is also a time to look ahead to the lives we can save through prevention, testing, and treatment."

"HIV is preventable and treatable," Graham notes. "But to protect yourself and those you love, you have to know whether or not you are already living with HIV--and that means taking the test. Fortunately, finding an HIV testing location has never been easier--now you can go online (http://www.hivtest.org) and find one near your home or workplace."

Graham says, "HIV/AIDS is still a deadly threat--especially for African Americans and Latinos. My patient might be alive today if he had been able to admit he could be at risk for HIV and taken the test. People need to understand that ignorance is not bliss when it comes to HIV. Ignorance is a killer."

Most of all, Graham says, "People need to understand the risks, take the test, and protect their futures. My patient was young and had his whole life ahead of him -- but on this World AIDS Day, he isn't here for his children or his family. The loss of all his potential was a tragedy."
