Thursday is National HIV Testing Day. The state Department of Public Health is teaming up with its national partner, Greater than AIDS, and health departments around the state to offer free HIV testing. Health officials say more than 1.1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV, but 20 percent of them don't know it.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta is trying to reduce stigma and complacency around HIV and AIDS with a new advertising and social media blitz featuring Americans living with the disease. The campaign is launching initially in six cities, including Atlanta.
