According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people aged 13-24 accounted for an estimated 26% of all new HIV infections in the US in 2010. Almost 60% of youth with HIV in the US do not know they are infected. If not treated, HIV can lead to a fatal condition known as AIDS. In order to help our students protect themselves and others against this potentially deadly virus, it is important for students to get tested when and if they are at risk.
Due to current circumstances, GatorWell will not be offering FREE Confidential HIV testing and counseling. In order to still get students connected with other local HIV testing sites that continue to provide testing, we have listed those sites information below. We hope to be able to provide testing at GatorWell again very soon.
