Metro Wellness observes 30th World AIDS Day with extensive testing, educational campaign

Metro Wellness and Community Centers will observe the 30th annual World AIDS Day Nov. 29-Dec. 7 with “Let’s Talk,” a campaign featuring educational and testing opportunities across Tampa Bay.

Metro has provided free HIV testing and treatment, along with prevention and education, for over 25 years. World AIDS Day, the first ever global health day, has been held annually on Dec. 1 since 1988. It provides a worldwide opportunity to unite in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

Tampa Bay continues to see a rise in HIV infections among all ages and genders, Metro shared Nov. 27, noting that minority communities are at high risk.
