What Is the National HIV Testing Mobilization Campaign?

The National HIV Testing Mobilization Campaign is a nationwide effort to promote HIV testing. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is mobilizing communities to encourage their members to get tested for HIV.

What Does the Campaign Do?

The Campaign brings “get tested for HIV” messages to new audiences. These include civic groups, faith-based communities, businesses, organizations, and individuals that do not typically talk about health issues, especially HIV prevention. The Campaign is mobilizing old and new partners to get the word out to their members and constituents.

The Campaign is sending speakers and materials to events and activities across the United States, including trade shows, conventions, conferences, and festivals. By speaking out and distributing information at these events, the Campaign is spreading the word that all sexually active Americans need to be tested for HIV. 

Campaign Goals

The goals of the Campaign are to do the following:

  1. Increase the number of people who get tested for HIV;
  2. Promote local, community-level discussions about HIV-related stigma and risk behaviors and increase the number of people engaged in these discussions; and
  3. Increase the number of new partnerships and collaborations addressing HIV/AIDS while maintaining existing relationships.

Campaign Sponsor

The Campaign is sponsored by the HHS Office of HIV/AIDS Policy (OHAP). OHAP advises the Assistant Secretary for Health and senior HHS officials on the appropriate and timely development and implementation of HIV/AIDS policy; the establishment of priorities; and the successful implementation of HIV/AIDS programs, activities, and initiatives across other HHS health agencies.
