(KTVI) – Wednesday is National HIV Testing Day. Federal Health officials urge everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 to get tested for HIV at least once as part of their healthcare routine.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends annual testing for people at high risk. The CDC also urges pregnant women to get tested early in their pregnancy so they can take steps necessary to keep them from passing the virus to their unborn child.
