Do you know your HIV status?

Hi everyone,

It's National (U.S.) Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2012. Here's a quick quiz to test your knowledge:

Poll #1825466 HIV Quiz

What percentage of those who tested positive for the HIV virus in 2009 identified as women?

17%
12(8.0%)
23%
59(39.3%)
36%
79(52.7%)




The CDC notes: "In 2009, [those who identify as] women comprised 51% of the US population and accounted for 23% of new HIV infections. Of the total number of new HIV infections among [those who identify as] women, 57% were among black women, 21% were in white women, and 18% were in Latina women."

Do you know your HIV status? Do you know your partner's? Click here for testing resources (many are free and/or anonymous) and more information on why it matters.

We encourage you to use this space to tell us your personal stories around HIV and/or the testing process.

Cheers,
