National HIV Testing Day #HIVTestingDay

Monday, June 27

First observed on June 27, 1995, National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment.

The 2021 theme -- “My Test, My Way,” -- emphasizes that there are different ways and places to get tested for HIV, including at home with a self-test. Partners can add a tagline to customize as they like. For example:

  • My Test, My Way – My contribution to Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S.
  • My Test, My Way – Take Pride by taking the test
  • My Test, My Way – If we all get tested, we can stop HIV together

Currently, CDC and many other organizations are distributing free HIV self-testing kits . You can find more information about HIV testing on our HIV Testing Overview page.
