Illinois: HIV/STD Conference to Give Away Condoms

October 24, 2012

The Illinois Department of Public Health will open its annual conference on HIV and STDs on October 24 with a "Save Lives, Condomize" giveaway campaign. The state's Public Health Director LaMar Hasbrouck will be in attendance for the handouts, noting that condom use decreases the risk of new HIV and STD cases. Attracting hundreds of health care providers, educators, and advocates from throughout the state, the two-day public health conference will allow participants to share information and develop strategies to prevent the spread of HIV and other STDs. Illinois ranks seventh in the nation in the diagnosis of HIV infections and fifth in the estimated number of AIDS cases. Cook County leads the nation in reported gonorrhea and primary and secondary syphilis cases and is second in reported chlamydia cases.
