PRLog - Oct. 11, 2012 - BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- New York, N.Y. - As an on-going advocate of HIV Awareness and Prevention, charity-driven apparel brand HUMAN INTONATION http://www.humanintonation.com is pleased to commend the launch of the OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test in 30,000 retail stores nationwide, the first and only rapid Over The Counter (OTC) HIV test approved in the U.S.

“While we look to change the stigma still associated with HIV testing, an in-home HIV test will provide an option to those who may be too afraid or embarrassed to receive an HIV test from a doctor, clinic, or testing site," says Verneda White, Founder & Creative Director of Human Intonation. "The more people who know their status, the closer we can come to stopping the spread of HIV by making available the knowledge people need to take the next right action. We also commend Magic Johnson and others who are championing the OraQuick In-Home HIV test in a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of knowing your status.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. that have HIV and approximately 240,000 of them are unaware of their status. Additionally, according to the CDC in 2009, African Americans represent approximately 14 percent of the total US population, but account for 44 percent of new HIV infections in the United States. The OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test can detect antibodies to both HIV-1 and HIV-2 with an oral swab, providing a confidential in-home testing option with results in as little as 20 minutes.

The OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test is also available now at http://www.oraquick.com.
