New CDC Campaign Targets LGBT Latinos

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently launched a new HIV prevention campaign targeting LGBT Latinos.

At 16% of the US population, Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic minority in the country. They also account for a disproportionate 21% of new HIV infections.

The CDC’s “My Reasons for Getting an HIV Test” campaign encourages gay and bisexual Latinos to get tested for personal reasons that matter to them. Some reasons include “My Future,” “My Partner,” and “My Friends.”

The new campaign also aims to educate the Latino LGBT community about preventing HIV, methods of HIV transmission, and finding nearby HIV testing centers.

Watch the campaign video and be sure to schedule an appointment for free, rapid HIV testing at HOPES.
