ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - The Alachua County Health Department will be observing National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (October 15, 2010) by providing free HIV testing in the Gainesville Community.

Hispanics/Latinos represent approximately 15 percent of the U.S. population, account for an estimated 18 percent of people living with HIV in the United States and an estimated 17 percent of new infections every year. In support of this important public health initiative, the Alachua County Health Department will be providing free and confidential HIV counseling and testing at the following locations through the Mobile Outreach Clinic:
