The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched We Can Stop HIV One Conversation at a Time/Podemos Detener el VIH Una Conversación a la Vez, a national communication campaign that encourages Hispanics/Latinos to talk openly about HIV/AIDS with their families, friends, partners, and communities. The campaign is part of CDC’s Act Against AIDS (AAA) initiative.
With a call to action that highlights the importance of talking about HIV, We Can Stop HIV One Conversation at a Time is CDC’s first communication campaign specifically developed to increase HIV/AIDS awareness among the Hispanic/Latino communities and decrease HIV-associated stigma and shame, which may prevent people from talking about HIV and AIDS.
Developed with input from hundreds of Hispanics/Latinos across the country and key Hispanic/Latino community organizations, the campaign features Hispanic/Latino men and women from culturally diverse backgrounds and highlights important facts and messages to prompt open conversations about HIV/AIDS. Campaign resources, including a dedicated campaign website, provide facts and practical tools and tips to help families and friends begin or continue important conversations about HIV prevention, testing, and treatment.
