Knowing Stay Campaign in Central Brazil. Action plans to hold 30 000 rapid tests of AIDS on Saturday

The city of Rio expects to make 30 000 AIDS rapid testing next Saturday (1st), as part of the national campaign Stay Knowing. In 2011, there were 17 500 exams in the state capital, according to Undersecretary of Primary Care and Monitoring of the Municipal Health and Civil Defense, Daniel Soranz. "Last year, the Stay Knowing, the city of Rio de Janeiro was the one that made the greatest number of exams in a single day. This new campaign, we want to repeat the brand, with the largest number of examinations in the country," said .

On Saturday, World Day to Combat AIDS, health facilities will be open from 8am to 17h. Typically, the units operate from 8am to 12pm. Launched on 10 November, the campaign Carioca Prevention offers tests for detection of HIV and syphilis in 200 health centers and family clinics across the capital, in partnership with the Special Coordination of Sexual Diversity, an agency of the prefecture. Only on the 10th of November when the action began, 21,600 examinations were made.

Daniel Soranz explained that any citizen can take exams. Blood is collected from the patient and exits result in approximately eight days. The result will be available at health facilities and the Internet. According Soranz, cases of AIDS and syphilis in Rio are in the Brazilian average. "With the increased availability of tests, we expect to find more cases early to protect the public from future cases," he said.

Who seek health facilities can also get vaccinated against hepatitis B and, for women, do preventive screening of cervical cancer. There will also be blood pressure measurements, distribution of educational materials and condoms, and health promotion activities. For more information on where to get tested, those interested can call the call center by calling City Hall 1746.
