Where to go for Aids/HIV testing and treatment near you

Latest update : 2010-07-29

Nearly thirty years after the discovery of the virus and the beginning of the pandemic, more than 33 million people across the world are living with HIV. But close to 60 percent of them are unaware that they are HIV-positive. Almost three million new infections occur each year.

In conjunction with the XVIII International AIDS Conference taking place this week in Vienna, France24.com is launching an interactive tool that will provide complete listings of all testing sites, health and medical centres and clinics and hospitals around the world offering free HIV testing, as well as information and counselling about the disease.

The map shown above gives the location and address of places in France and, to follow shortly, throughout the entire world. Available in English, French and Arabic, it is as comprehensive as possible. This is a collaborative project that will be developed using information provided by its users. Individuals and professionals, charities and NGOs taking part in the fight against AIDS are welcome to contribute to this database and to make use of it for their own activities.

We encourage you to tell friends and colleagues about this initiative. The more contributions we receive, the more useful and complete a resource the map will be.
