World AIDS Day is december 1st.

things you can do:

1) get tested. has it been over a year? don't assume that your doctor automatically completes this screen. in the US you have to sign a release to have it done.
today you can know your results in 20 minutes and often you don't need to give any blood. testers can now take an oral swab.

2) be educated. know your risk behaviors and be proud of how you protect yourself. make changes if you can. talk to friends and partners.

3) reach out. find a local AIDS service organization and volunteer. give money if you can't give time. is there a world aids day demonstration in your area? go out and see what's going on.

4) stay informed. look outside your own life and know how this disease is ravaging others in your country and around the world.

5) watch a movie:
