There have been rumors in Hollywood for a few weeks that an A-Lister has been hiding that he’s HIV+. The actor, Charlie Sheen, discloses on the Today Show this morning that he's been living with HIV for four years.

It's a stark reminder that HIV/AIDS didn't just go away and we are not immune to it here in the tri-state. Matthew 25 AIDS Services and the AIDS Resource Group are local organizations that specializes in HIV/AIDS.

According to their site:

 Matthew 25 AIDS Services operates medical clinic locations in both Indiana and Kentucky, providing early intervention specialty HIV/AIDS medical care, medication adherence programs, food pantry, transportation, indigent medication program, referral services, counseling and testing services, education and information in Vanderburgh County, IN, Henderson County, KY and Daviess County, KY. We have become a leader in the Tri-State in HIV counseling and testing, partner counseling, and resource linking and treatment. Dedicated to holistic care, we treat the whole person, not just the disease.”

It is important that if you engage in risky behavior such as sharing needles or unprotected sexual activity to get tested regularly. Matthew 25 provides testing or you can use an at-home kit.

If you need HIV/AID services, visit one of our local Matthew 25 offices today.
