Today’s young people are the first generation who have never known a world without HIV and AIDS. In the United States, one in four new HIV infections is among youth ages 13 to 24. Every month 1,000 young people are infected with HIV and over 76,400 young people are currently living with HIV across the country.
While there has been much talk about an AIDS-Free Generation, we know that is not possible without our nation’s youth. Young people and their allies are determined to end this epidemic once and for all and this day is a way to acknowledge the great work young people are already engaging in to do so.
In Florida, any youth age 13 and older can receive an HIV Test without parental consent. If you are sexually active you may be at risk at risk for HIV or any other sexually transmitted infection, please get tested.
Project Response offers FREE confidential rapid testing and results are provided within 15 minutes. You will receive counseling before and after the test to answer any questions and provide with current and accurate information regarding HIV and other STD’s. Contact our clinic at 321-372-5003.
