The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that HIV testing is one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of the disease. Nowhere is this more true than on college campuses, where individuals often engage in risky sexual behavior.
In an effort to curb the spread of the disease, some colleges have begun offer free HIV testing to their students. This may help make screening more accessible and affordable for individuals who may otherwise not have considered seeking testing.
The University of Connecticut recently began offering HIV testing to students for free, which has reassured some at the school of their safety, according to the Daily Campus.
"[It's] better for the safety of the entire campus population because then you can prepare yourself," Neil Deleon, a senior psychology student, told the news source. "I have a bunch of friends that have taken advantage of it."
Officials said that the program has been a success, and that there are commonly long wait times due to high demand on the days that they offer free testing.
