CBS New York reported that the Long Island Association for AIDS Care as well as several other local health organizations will offer free HIV testing for the month of December in honor of the 25th World AIDS Day, which was December 1. A group of approximately 1,000 AIDS activists gathered in Times Square on Sunday to continue promoting HIV awareness and to stop the spread of the disease in New York State. According to Jessica Totino of Long Island Association for AIDS Care, many people infected with HIV today are young people. “It’s growing the most high amongst the youth of 13–24, so our children essentially,” she said.
