There have been 1,820 new HIV diagnoses in Los Angeles alone, so LA has recently launched a campaign called “Once and for All,” which is meant to curb the high HIV/AIDs rates in the city.
Its goal is to reduce annual HIV infections to 500 by 2022, and to increase testing so that 90% of people know that they are HIV positive.
Testing options are available throughout LA. There are many public testing centers available, including 6 Planned Parenthood locations on Vermont Avenue, South Broadway, 30th Street, Whittier Boulevard, South La Brea Avenue, and Colorado Boulevard.
There are many different private options as well, including on La Brea Avenue, 120th Street, and Manchester Avenue. There’s an AIDS institute specifically to help African Americans and people of other ethnicities located on 8th Street, and an LGBT STD testing center close by in West Hollywood.
You can also find free STD testings dates at some of those locations, especially if you are worried about HIV. Due to the limited testing times you may have a long wait, but it is worth it when it comes to your health.
