National HIV Testing Day - June 27

Each year on June 27, we observe National HIV Testing Day. On this day, we unite with partners, health departments, and other organizations to raise awareness and plan events about the importance of HIV testing and early diagnosis of HIV.

Get Involved

Help encourage HIV testing on National HIV Testing Day and every day to ensure people get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment services. Plan a testing day event, or use the resources below to raise awareness of the importance of HIV testing

This year’s theme, “Doing It My Way,” highlights how and why people make testing part of their lives—on their terms and in their way. Doing It My Way encourages individuals to share their personal testaments of why testing is important, what motivates them to get tested and stay healthy, and how they get tested—be it at home, at the clinic, or with the company of a friend or loved one.

Get the Word Out

Share these posts and the accompanying Doing It My Way visuals on social media using the #DoingItMyWay hashtag (#HaciéndoloAMiManera in Spanish).
