According to Deborah Anne, AIDS Certified Registered Nurse with the Frederick County Health Department, "Many of those who are infected with HIV are unaware of their status because they have never had an HIV test.
"This results in many people who have HIV/AIDS unknowingly transmitting the virus to others, and this is how the epidemic continues to grow. It is important to remember that early diagnosis and early treatment are key to living well with HIV, but left undiagnosed and untreated, HIV still leads to AIDS and death, " continues Anne.
"If we are to turn the tide of devastation in the African-American community, we must take action-we must end the silence. If we talk about this devastating disease, we can make a difference... and there's no better time than Feb. 7," says Anne.

Debbie Anne, the HIV/AIDS program supervisor at the Frederick County Health Department, said most couples who come to the department to get tested for HIV are young, and she wishes more would do the same.
People younger than 30 reported a quarter of the state's 2,000 new HIV cases in 2006, and the highest number of diagnoses over the last several years has been among women ages 15 to 39, according to statistics from the health department.More than 18,000 Marylanders have HIV, and in another 14,000, the virus has progressed to AIDS.
The presence of other sexually transmitted diseases increases the likelihood of acquiring or transmitting HIV, and these diseases are prevalent among young women.A study released this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that one in four teenage girls have at least one STD.
"The gap that once existed between the number of men contracting HIV and the number of women has now closed," Anne said, and heterosexual contact is now the No. 1 method of transmission in Maryland.
...
"Many people don't get tested until they end up in the ER," Anne said, at which point the disease has likely progressed to AIDS."It's much better to get diagnosed earlier."With treatment, those infected with HIV can die of old age, instead of AIDS, Anne said.

Debbie Anne, a nurse and supervisor of the HIV program at the Frederick County Health Department, set up her table Saturday afternoon.
She was busy hanging posters with slogans such as "No to sex is not no to love," "It's your life, protect it," and "It's OK to say no way."
She said the signs help get the message across because some teens may feel uncomfortable coming over to the table.
"Teens are at risk for HIV because they don't understand the risk," she said.

Although churches and health officials have sometimes disagreed on how best to prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS, the Frederick Church of the Brethren collaborated with Debbie Anne of the Frederick County Health Department for national HIV Testing Day on Sunday.
"We need influential partners," said Anne, county HIV program supervisor. "We can't do it alone. Especially in a conservative community like this, we need their help."
It's estimated that 1 in 159 people in Frederick County are living with HIV; 80 people don't know they have it and are potentially spreading it around to others, Anne said.
The health department typically tests 40 to 50 people per month. Although many promotions for National HIV Testing Day ran the last few weeks, Anne said there wasn't a significant change in the number of people who came in to get tested.
She and members of the HIV/AIDS Ministry Team at the church hope their partnership will reach more people.
...
Sunday's roundtable discussion drew a crowd of about 25 and included five panelists: Anne; John Day, a member of Maryland's Community Planning Group; Carmi Washington Flood, developer of the faith-based initiative in Maryland; Jan Gardner, president of the Frederick County Commissioners; Tony Moore, a HIV peer advocate and Paul Mundey, the church's senior pastor.
...
Anne said the event was a success and the ministry was able to make some contacts for future projects. Working with local churches would be instrumental in reaching African-Americans, the demographic most affected by the disease in Frederick County, she said.
"The African-American community is disproportionately affected," Anne said.

The church hosts an HIV/AIDS support group, led by Anne.
