New Ways: Reporting HIV & AIDS Today
As part of an initiative funded by the CDC’s Partnering and Communicating Together (PACT) to Act Against AIDS program, NLGJA is developing and presenting journalism training and resources to equip journalists covering issues and trends related to HIV & AIDS in new ways while reiterating the time-tested basics of talking, testing and treatment. The journalists in turn can better serve their viewers, readers and listeners with important information, especially those in communities and geographic areas most impacted by HIV & AIDS.

Start Talking. Stop HIV.
“Start Talking. Stop HIV. is a campaign that seeks to reduce HIV infections among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men by encouraging open discussion between sex partners and friends about a range of HIV prevention strategies.”
“As part of the Act Against AIDS initiative, Doing It delivers the message that HIV testing should be a part of everyone’s regular health routine to keep ourselves and our community healthy.”
Let's Stop HIV Together
“The Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign raises awareness about HIV and its impact on the lives of all Americans, and fights stigma by showing that persons with HIV are real people—mothers, fathers, friends, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, partners, wives, husbands, and co-workers.”
“One Conversation at a Time, is a national communication campaign that encourages Hispanics/Latinos to talk openly about HIV/AIDS with their families, friends, partners, and communities.”
HIV Treatment Works
“HIV Treatment Works features people from across the United States who are living with HIV talking about how sticking with care and treatment helps them stay healthy, protect others, and live longer, healthier lives.”
