Come by Northwest One Library for free educational programs on HIV/AIDS all week, culminating in free rapid testing this Saturday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
A 2009 report from the DC HIV/AIDS Administration states, “At least 3% of District of Columbia residents are living with HIV/AIDS, greater than the 1% level that constitutes a ‘generalized and severe’ epidemic.”
And out of those 15,120 people, about one-third to one-half of them may be unaware of their infection.
