A Box of Tools for National HIV Testing Day 2011
June 21, 2011
This is the season for toolboxes. Sunday was Father's Day -- and tools are a popular gift for dads. Summer is the time when many of us pull out our toolboxes to work on home improvement or hobby projects.
So that got us thinking about the "tools" we have in our HIV prevention, testing and treatment "toolbox".
With National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) coming up on June 27, we wanted to highlight some social media tools that can help support and promote the NHTD theme, Take the Test. Take Control.
Here are some examples:
These are just some of the many "products" that we can use, repurpose, and share with those we know we want to reach on NHTD and beyond. These ready-to-use tools reflect the ways in which social media can support education and behavior change, streamline effort, and capitalize on common messaging.
As we continue to commemorate "30 Years of AIDS", the observance of NHTD gives us another opportunity to raise awareness of the life-saving potential of taking an HIV test and to help people find HIV testing, So here are our questions for you:
We look forward to hearing from you!
