Together-BP.jpg"Let's Stop HIV Together" is a new initiative launched by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on July 16, 2012. The campaign is a new phase of Act Against AIDS effort launched in 2009 to fight the complacency about HIV/AIDS in the United States and to reduce the risk of infection for the hardest-hit populations. The new campaign shares personal stories of individuals who are living with HIV and asks you to and your community to "Get the facts. Get tested. Get involved."

Based on 2009 statistics, the CDC estimates that in the United States each year 50,000 individuals become infected with HIV. At the end of 2008, an estimated 1,178,350 persons aged 13 and older were living with HIV infection in the United States. Of those, it is estimated that 20% had undiagnosed HIV infections.

If you are interested in promoting "Let's Stop HIV Together" or contributing your story to the campaign visit their website.

This is an excellent intiative. If we can stop HIV/AIDS at the grass roots level we can stop the pyramid expanding and hopefully get the situation under control. easy to say, harder to achieve.
