Running from 19-25 November, the purpose of the week is to raise awareness of the importance of testing for HIV. HIV TESTING SAVES LIVES. People still choose to not get tested, due to the fear of stigma and discrimination surrounding HIV. Please spread the word. If you have a twitter account use @Calderdale#WorldAIDSDay. For testing and support, visit your GP or see the following websites:
