CDC Launches Bilingual Campaign, "My Reasons for Getting an HIV Test," in Latino LGBT Community
June 11, 2013
CDC recently launched "Reasons/Razones," a national bilingual AIDS prevention campaign for Latino lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. CDC Spokesperson Lorrie Alvin stated that although Miami is a focus city for the campaign, the messages will be seen nationwide in advertisements and at major Gay Pride events. The campaign focuses on increasing HIV testing among Latino LGBT people. According to CDC, Latinos accounted for 21 percent of new HIV infections in 2011 and 70 percent of HIV-positive Latino gay and bisexual men ages 18 to 24 did not know their status.
