The Great Northwest’s Planned Parenthood has announced that it would offer free HIV/AIDS testing at all of its Alaska Health Centers from December 10 through December 14.
The free HIV testing initiative will be sponsored by the "Someone You Know" fund - a contribution scheme based on private donations that was set up to offer free preventive health services to low-income as well as uninsured people who need reproductive health care.
The U. S. Preventative Services Task Force urges all people aged between 15 and 65 to get tested for HIV/AIDS regularly, irrespective of risk level.
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest is a branch of non-profit health care provider Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood centers across Canada are running short of condoms as manufacturer Ansell Canada Inc stopped donating condoms.
Ansell had been providing around 500,000 condoms for free to around thirty Planned Parenthood centers affiliated with the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health. Planned Parenthood St. John’s executive director Costa Kasimos pointed out that the cost of an unintentional pregnancy would be more than the cost of 40,000 condoms.
