October 12, 2011 marked the launch National Latino AIDS Awareness Day activities in NYC.

The day began with a press conference at City Hall, where speakers such as Dr. Monica Sweeney (Assistant Commissioner -- NYC Department of Health), Guillermo Chacon (President of the Latino Commission on AIDS), Robert Jackson (Council Member), and Melissa Mark-Viverito (Council Member) all spoke about the importance of getting testing and knowing one's status. After the press conference, a unique campaign, called "Take The Train? Take The Test!", led by the Latino Commission on AIDS and over 30 community partners including OraSure Technologies, offered free OraQuick ADVANCE® rapid oral fluid HIV testing at 25 different subway stations across all 5 boroughs of New York City.

National Latino AIDS Awareness Day aims to raise awareness and draw attention to the critical role that HIV testing and prevention education play in stemming the spread of HIV and AIDS.
