Although World Aids Day 2012 has passed, there are still 364 other days during the year to get tested.
Oakland Local has created a map for you with places that offer testing in Oakland. The information in this map was collected from a variety of sources, including this National HIV and STD Testing Map run by the Centers for Disease Control.
This winter Oakland Local is featuring a series of in-depth stories by reporter C.B. Smith-Dahl on the state of HIV/AIDS in Oakland. This article is the second in the series. Although the percentage of HIV infections in Oakland is comparable to San Francisco, the city's issues receive much less media coverage. Oakland Local's series on HIV/AIDS in Oakland focuses on local responses to challenges unique to the city.
This series of articles is created in partnership with HealthyCal.org.
Articles in the series include:
• Feb. 7: What's Your HIV IQ?
• Feb. 7: Black AIDS Awareness Day - Young Black Men in Oakland
• Mar. 6 : HIV/AIDS Survey Results
