FEBRUARY 7, 2008 - National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness day, and like COMMON said "Knowing is Beautiful." If you don't know your status, I highly recommend going to get tested. You could be living with the virus for 5 years before having any symptoms, meanwhile unprotected sex can still spread it. I think this is why it's so rampant among our people. And remember if you get tested and you test negative, wait six months and get tested again, because the virus may not have fully developed and the anitbodies may not yet be present. And remember SAFE SEX!!!! That's one of the few ways to prevent it, and of course the best one: abstinence. Head over to BLACK AIDS DAY for more info, and Wrap it up!!
