Join the movement to prevent HIV. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed Reasons for Latino gay and bisexual men. The goal of this national campaign is to promote HIV testing among Latino gay and bisexual men. Reasons aims to demonstrate that knowing one's HIV status is important and empowering.

The campaign's bold images and messages are featured as targeted mobile and online ads, national and local print and outdoor/transit advertising, in select cities experiencing high levels of HIV infection in Latino gay and bisexual men.

Reasons is just one part of the solution to the cycle of HIV among Latino gay and bisexual men. We need a nationwide movement to stop HIV in this community.

Everyone has a role to play:

  • As individuals: Get tested for HIV, know your HIV status, and talk about HIV with your loved ones.
  • As a community: Tackle the discrimination, stigma, and homophobia that fuel the HIV epidemic among Latino gay and bisexual men.
  • As a nation: Work to advance the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy by increasing HIV prevention efforts and reducing disparities in the U.S. HIV epidemic.

Reasons is a part of Act Against AIDS, CDC's 5-year, multi-faceted national communication campaign to fight the HIV/AIDS crisis in the United States. Act Against AIDS focuses on raising HIV awareness among all persons living in the United States and reducing the risk of infection among the hardest-hit populations. The multiple campaign phases use mass media (TV, radio, newspapers, billboards, magazines, the Internet, and other communication channels) to deliver important HIV prevention messages.
