When people are given the facts, they learn that knowing their HIV status is better than not knowing.

Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

According to the CDC, nearly one in five people in the U.S. with HIV do not know they are infected. The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 be tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. Those at an increased risk such as men who have sex with men, injection drug users, or those with multiple sex partners should be tested more often. Journeyworks Publishing has several HIV education pamphlets that make a compelling case for testing. Educators and health professionals can review these pamphlets now by visiting Journeyworks Publishing's HIV Testing review pack page.

Getting an HIV test should be on everyone’s list, but fear of bad news may hold some people back. HIV education pamphlets can help ease the fear. When people are given the facts, they realize that knowing their HIV status is better than not knowing. They learn that a positive result means they can take steps to stay healthier longer, and that they can protect others. If the result is negative, they understand what they need to do to keep it that way. When people get clear information, they are more likely to not let fear stand in their way. Journeyworks Publishing’s HIV prevention and testing materials are straightforward, nonjudgmental and effective tools designed to empower and prompt positive action.

Educators and health professionals working to promote HIV awareness, testing and prevention can request review copies of HIV education pamphlets by visiting Journeyworks Publishing's HIV Testing review pack page.
