Events were held all across the U.S., as all worked to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS.

National HIV Testing Day events were held to build the education of many people and to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.

On top of that, several events were held to offer free testing for people.

It is believed that 250,000 Americans are infected with HIV, but do not know it.

If they can find a way to get these people tested and build their awareness, it could save the lives of others from being infected.

Health officials across the U.S. spread the message loud and clear, as the best way to protect yourself is to get tested.
