By Jan. 15: Open Letter to US CDC: Reduce YOUR Risk of Misleading Language, Methods, Recommendations on Gay/Bi/MSM Sex, Gender Identity, HIV Prevention

The HIV Prevention Justice Alliance (HIV PJA) and AIDS Foundation of Chicago, along with 12 initiating endorsing groups, have released an open letter to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The letter urges CDC to reduce its own risk of misleading depictions of Gay/Bi/MSM sexuality, HIV prevention practices, and gender identity.

Focused on CDC's 2013 MMWR Report on HIV Testing and Risk of US Gay, Bisexual and other MSM, this letter calls for CDC to re-evaluate its language, methods and recommendations in order to support health and resiliency.

We invite endorsements from individuals and organizations. Please click here to endorse by January 15.

Please forward to all who may be interested!
