Georgia: HIV Campaign Launches in Atlanta

January 30, 2012

Atlanta will be the first city to debut "Testing Makes Us Stronger," a new campaign to encourage black gay and bisexual men to be screened for HIV. The outreach is part of CDC's "Act Against AIDS" initiative, an effort to refocus the nation's attention on the importance of HIV testing and prevention. The Fulton County Department of Health Services will provide free HIV testing to residents Feb. 2-3. Testing will be conducted Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Avenue MARTA station and Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lindbergh MARTA station.
