    We’ve got a few reports for you about HIV and AIDS on this day:

    WHYY’s Susan Phillips reports on a small group of activists in Philly that has gained national recognition for its campaign to put finding a cure back on the agenda.

    WHYY’s Peter Crimmins reports about the Mazzoni Center – a gay, lesbian, and transgender health organization. It’s setting up a mobile testing unit in locations around the city to offer free, anonymous test results, while you wait.

    And testing is always a good idea any day of the year – a full 25% of HIV infections in Philadelphia are undetected.
