NYC Hospitals Test 134,000 For HIV

In a letter to the New York Times, City Council Speaker Christin Quinn announced that an additional $5.6M funding for rapid HIV tests has allowed the city's hospitals to test almost 134,000 patients over the last year. Quinn: "The only way to truly combat this crisis is to ensure that all New Yorkers take a simple first step to learn their H.I.V. status. Only then can we arm those residents who are positive with both the medication and education they need to keep themselves and their partners healthy."

When was your last HIV test?
