California: Oakland HIV Prevention Kickoff
May 27, 2010
On June 1, Oakland will launch a testing campaign to address the city's disproportionate burden of HIV/AIDS. The rate of HIV infection in Oakland is more than seven times the rates seen in other Alameda County cities, officials said. One campaign objective is to make offering HIV screening a routine part of health care. "Get Screened Oakland" will kick off at 10-11 a.m. at Plaza De La Fuente, International Boulevard between 34th and 35th streets. The free event will feature music and other entertainment, refreshments, and giveaways. For more information, visit www.getscreenedoakland.org or telephone 510-238-7070.
