National HIV testing Week
So What’s Going On
A LOT !
HIGHLIGHT… My highlight
I would consider the main highlight of the week is the Hotline launch. I say this because the hotline will actively give out locations of various testing centers across the country. I say this because “AIDS HELPLINE” is home to me as this is where I was first trained in counseling in the 90s. I say this because the hotline is a more potent media to explain and educate people compared to Twitter or any chat media.
DOH HIV TEST HOTLINE
The shoots will once again be tweet-blasted but this time around, we have edited the texts to make them more informative. We also found some unreleased pictures and we are excited to release them. We are using the following hashtags:
