Alongside the HIV home-testing kits, the HRC Foundation’s community campaign, launched last year, targets areas of the country that are most affected by HIV/AIDS – communities and partners, including New Orleans, LA (Community Health PIER), Miami, FL (Arianna’s Center), Washington DC (Us Helping Us), Puerto Rico (Arianna’s Center), Indianapolis, IN (BU Wellness Network), and Greenville, MS (Brotherhood Incorporated). This groundbreaking digital advocacy and public awareness campaign aims to educate and activate Black and Latina communities by discussing the intersections of sexual health, race and homosexuality in order to dismantle the lingering stigma and fear of HIV. .
Supported by Gilead Sciences, the home service is part of My Body, My Health, a comprehensive public education campaign that aims to create an HIV/AIDS-free generation. In addition to distributing test kits, the program provides referrals to PrEP providers in the person’s area and connects HIV-positive people to care through referral services. The kits will include an OraQuick oral swab, condoms, lubricants and a test information card. This campaign is promoted through paid and organic social media marketing as well as in-person events, such as Pride events across the country. HRC has also created resources to complement the test kits, such as an online service page that shows local HIV prevention and treatment services.
