Test For Life Shares Senator Burr Statement on National HIV Testing Day
Date:6/27/2008

WASHINGTON, June 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of National HIV Testing Day, Test For Life released the following statement provided by the office of Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina on the importance of testing to fight the spread of HIV:

"HIV/AIDS is one of the most devastating diseases known to exist. It has cut short the lives of too many. I am proud to support efforts like the National HIV Testing Day, which are important in helping raise awareness of the disease and in fighting its spread by providing education and treatment to people who need it. I have long been an advocate for programs such as the Ryan White CARE Act (RWCA), which provides funding for treatment and care for individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS who are in the greatest need of assistance. Many North Carolina communities have seen dramatic increases in their RWCA funding levels, including $368,000 in the Raleigh/Durham area. Overall, North Carolina will gain $10.2 million in additional funding through federal law. I am hopeful that with the help of programs like RWCA and the National HIV Testing Day, we can curb the spread of this devastating disease." - Sen. Richard Burr

Test For Life also conducted a Question & Answer session with First Lady Laura Bush on the importance of routine HIV testing. The column was published in today's Charlotte Observer. The full story can be found at: http://www.charlotte.com/opinion/story/688015.html

Senator Burr's National HIV Testing Day message follows Test For Life's release of a national survey on attitudes surrounding HIV and AIDS as part of its national campaign to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and ensure access to care for those who test positive.
