Take Charge. Take the Test.
Take Charge. Take the Test. is a national campaign that encourages HIV testing among Black/African American women between the ages of 18–34. The campaign was implemented in 10 U.S. cities in March of 2012 where large numbers of Black women are represented and affected by HIV.
A number of complex factors place Black women at increased risk of HIV infection. Through compelling messages and imagery, Take Charge. Take the Test. ™ helps Black women recognize their risk of getting HIV, and empower them with the information they need to take charge of their sexual health. Take Charge. Take the Test. was informed by significant research with Black women across the United States, and nationally-renowned consultants, experts, and community leaders.
