Quotes from Dr. Jonathan Mermin, Director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention

National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (September 27)


Below are quotes for attribution to Dr. Jonathan Mermin for your coverage of National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

“National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day reminds Americans that this epidemic still has a strong foothold in the gay community. New infections have increased among young gay and bisexual men, and we must take action as a nation to protect another generation from this preventable disease.”

“As CDC reaffirms its commitment to reducing HIV’s impact among gay and bisexual men, today, we call on the entire gay community to re-engage in this fight and put HIV prevention back on the agenda. We ask gay and bisexual men to get tested, get treated, protect their health, and help stop the spread of HIV. Each of us has the power to make a difference – every person and every action counts.”
