Pennsylvania: Going Door to Door to Fight HIV in Philadelphia
August 3, 2012
Southwest Philadelphia, whose residents are dying of AIDS at nearly twice the citywide average, is the site for an on-the-street prevention and testing outreach campaign aimed at stopping the spread of HIV. Sixty trained volunteers are knocking on doors and stopping passers-by, urging them to get tested for free at a mobile van or local health center. The goal of the two-year effort is to test 12,000 locals.
