Tip of the Month
Health Observance: December 1st is World AIDS Day
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend that everyone aged 13–64 years be tested for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), at least once in their lifetime. It is especially important for pregnant women to be tested for HIV as part of their prenatal care. Getting treatment during pregnancy greatly reduces the risk of passing HIV to the baby and also helps women lead longer and healthier lives.
