Free Rapid HIV Testing

By Renay Rouse

February 01, 2017

In recognition of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the Florida Department of Health in Martin County is offering free HIV rapid and STD testing. No appointment is needed and HIV results are available in 15 minutes. Health department staff will also provide free education and counseling.

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was established to raise awareness of the virus in the African American community, the racial group most affected by HIV in the United States. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that Blacks make up only 12% of the U.S. population, but have had nearly half of all new infections of the United States.
