This is a result of a partnership between the Caribbean Broadcast Media Partnership on HIV and AIDS and Scotia bank.Expanded from its pilot programme in 2008, which was concentrated in Barbados, the initiative aims, this year, to have approximately 10,000 people across the region tested.Coordinator of the Testing and Counseling program within the HIV Unit Mary Williams says one of the main reasons for this testing campaign is to encourage everyone to know his/her status, since knowing ones’ HIV status is better than not knowing. She says the gesture will also be extended to the Kalinago Territory over the weekend.Dominica Vibes News HealthLifestyleLocalNews Free HIV testing ahead of Regional Testing Day next week by: – June 24, 2011 16 Views   no discussionslast_img read more
