Digital Communication for National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2016

national-gay-men-hiv-awareness day - logoEach national health observance offers another opportunity to promote messages about HIV prevention, care, treatment, and research and to encourage personal action. For National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD) – September 27 – we have assembled digital communication assets you can use across social media platforms.

HIV Services Locator

The AIDS.gov HIV Testing Sites & Care Services Locator enables individuals to find an HIV test and much more, including services for mental health, substance abuse, housing, and family planning. You can emphasize the importance of getting care by putting the Locator widget on your site. This video Exit Disclaimer shows how the Locator mobile app works.

Digital Stories

Are you looking to reach gay and bi men with the power of personal stories? Positive Spin is a series of stories and videos that address the importance of knowing one’s HIV status and getting and staying in care.  The Positive Spin stories can help start conversations about knowing your status and connecting to care.  Other video stories are included in the CDC’s Start Talking. Stop HIV. campaign.

Talk and Listen

To be a part of the conversation on social media, use this hashtag #NGMHAAD Exit Disclaimer.

AIDS.gov and other Federal programs are talking about NGMHAAD and HIV on many social channels. AIDS.gov is active on: Facebook Exit Disclaimer, Twitter Exit Disclaimer, Instagram Exit Disclaimer, YouTube Exit Disclaimer, and Snapchat Exit Disclaimer.

Visual Resources

We’ve got the logo for the day on our NGMHAAD resource page. CDC has banners, social media images, and other graphics ready for your use. We encourage you to check out the materials from CDC’s Start Talking. Stop HIV. campaign.
