ONE MILLION TESTS
- WORLD AIDS DAY 2008

Sign Up and Join the Effort!

The World AIDS Day 2008 Global Testing Campaign, organized by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, in coalition with hundreds of global partners, is mobilizing non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local and national governments, international relief agencies, faith-based organizations, civil society, the media, and YOU to conduct ONE MILLION Free HIV Tests during an extended World AIDS Day week commencing on November 26th and culminating on December 1st.

This worldwide testing campaign will leverage innovative testing strategies for streamlined and large scale testing - embracing a variety of rapid testing modalities, group pre-test counseling models, and easy antiretroviral treatment (ART) referrals whenever possible. ART not only saves the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS, it prevents further transmission.

The Challenges:

- The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 33 Million people are estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS.
- The vast majority of HIV positive people worldwide do not know their status.
- 9.7 Million people are in urgent need of lifesaving antiretroviral treatment (ART) today.
- Less than 3 Million people have access to ART today, leaving more than 6 Million to fall sick and die.
- Current VCT models cannot possibly serve the numbers needed for adequate global surveillance.

We encourage you to contact us with any comments or suggestions, and welcome you to join this vital effort.
