National Transgender HIV Testing Day

National Transgender HIV Testing Day (NTHTD) will be observed on April 18, 2017. The community lead is UCSF’s The Center for Excellence in Transgender Health. Exit Disclaimer

NTHTD is a day to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing, status awareness and continued focus on HIV prevention and treatment efforts among transgender and gender non-binary people. The initiative encourages community-based organizations, health jurisdictions and HIV prevention programs to host local transgender HIV testing community events and/or develop trans-specific HIV testing campaign materials and resources.
