One of the things that we should do every six months is to get tested for HIV. I say this because any disease, if diagnosed early enough could be either cured or controlled.
I know many people who are HIV+ and are living healthy and active. Being HIV+ is no longer a death sentence but it still has to be managed.
According to Towleroad:
Still, while about 80% of infected people know their status (about 1.1 million), another 20% are blissfully and dangerously unaware (about 200,000). Knowledge is power, they say, and in this case knowledge could help manage the virus’ transmission.
