May 21, 2014 – New CDC campaign inspires life-saving conversations about HIV among gay & bisexual men
Today CDC launched Start Talking. Stop HIV., a new national communication campaign encouraging gay and bisexual men to talk openly with their sexual partners about HIV risk and prevention strategies. Research suggests that communication leads to behaviors, such as testing and HIV status disclosure, that can help reduce HIV risk. However, important conversations about HIV do not occur within many relationships due to fear of discrimination.
For your stories about the new campaign, please find below a press release, as well as other useful background resources on the campaign and on HIV.
