Have you ever encouraged someone to get an HIV test?  If yes, then we want to hear your story.  HIV is affecting young African American  gay and bisexual males. Here at ACCESS AIDS Care, we encourage this audience to get tested.  To learn more about our latest HIV testing campaign, visit


Getting an HIV test may be easy for some and difficult for others. Here are some steps to help you encourage someone to get tested for HIV:

  1. Educate:  Yourself and other about the importance of HIV testing
  2. Care:   Let the person know that you care, why you care, and help them or yourself get into care.  
  3. Speak:  Have an open, honest conversation about staying safe and healthy.  Having the initial conversation about HIV testing may be uncomfortable, but stay focused and remember that speaking about the issue leads to the issue being solved.
  4. Listen: To the fears and concerns regarding HIV testing of the other person.
  5. Support: Go with the person to the testing site for a free and confidential HIV test.
