Health Department To Participate In World AIDS Day

More than thirty years after the first cases of HIV and AIDS surfaced, these diseases are still serious health problems that require our attention.

In order to promote regular testing, raise awareness and commemorate those who have lost their battles with HIV and AIDS, the Sedgwick County Health Department will participate in World AIDS Days.

Everyone ages 13 to 64 should be tested yearly for HIV, regardless of perceived risk. The health department will offer the following testing on Monday, Dec. 2:

  • Free conventional venipuncture HIV testing at the Main Clinic, 2716 W. Central in Wichita, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will be available.
  • Free rapid testing for students and faculty at Wichita State University from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the main lobby of Ahlberg Hall, conducted by Sedgwick County Health Department Behavioral Intervention Specialist (BIS) staff.

For more information, contact the Sedgwick County Health Department at 316-660- 7300, or visit
