Learn about these National Campaigns

Testing Makes Us Stronger.

These CDC-supported campaigns work to encourage HIV testing among African Americans.

The Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign raises awareness about HIV and its impact on the lives of all Americans, and fights stigma by showing that persons with HIV are real people—mothers, fathers, friends, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, partners, wives, husbands, and co-workers.

CDC’s Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative (AAALI) is a six-year partnership between CDC and leading national organizations representing the populations hardest hit by HIV. Launched in 2009, the AAALI initiative initially brought together some of the nation's foremost African American organizations to intensify HIV prevention efforts in black communities. In 2010, CDC expanded AAALI to include organizations that focus on the Latino community and on black gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM).

The Act Against AIDS, Linking African American and Hispanic/Latino Patients to Care campaign is tailored to help medical providers improve HIV outcomes among African American and Hispanic/Latino patients by making HIV testing and linking to care the clinical standard.

Information is Powerful Medicine Campaign

PEPFAR

The Information Is Powerful Medicine campaign speaks to Black gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. It shows how access to medical records can help in managing health.
