One in five of HIV infected people in Spain do not know they are infected and this is why, this week in Spain, they're celebrating the National Day of HIV Testing. Every year the numbers of new infections are increasing, estimated at a total of 150.000 new cases today, of which around 30,000 people aren't aware they are infected, so they go on infecting others without wanting to. Just because they don't know their status.
"We all have the right to take an HIV test" is the theme of the 'National Day Of HIV Testing' this year and I would like to add to it that it's a responsibility to yourself and toothers. This day aims to make people aware of how important it is to get tested -and how normal this should be.
