World AIDS Day

It’s  really cazy out here please go get tested!!!

Did you know over 2000 people in Monroe County have been diagnosed with HIV?!

Or what about – that Rochester has the 2nd highest HIV infection rate per capital in the state!!

And that’s just Rochester!

 

181,000 people in NYS currently have HIV/AIDS – that’s more than any other state in the country!

I can’t even take this next statistic…

According to Trillium Health, “every 9 ½ minutes, someone is infected with HIV in America”

annnnnnnd

An estimated 1 in 4 individuals that have HIV and don’t even know it

OMG and people 13-29 account for over 30% of all new infections – that’s the most out of any other age group!

Get tested and MAKE YOUR PARTNER GET TESTED!!!

I honestly cannot believe this it’s making my stomach hurt!

This is no laughing matter people!!
