One in two black men who have sex with men will be diagnosed with HIV during their lifetimes (CDC, 2015).

Here are 5 things you can do to make a difference!

1.      Consider taking Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

PrEP is an HIV prevention strategy for HIV-negative folks that’s as simple as taking one pill a day. Approximately 80,000 people in the US have used PrEP. A combination of insurance and drug assistance programs make PrEP very affordable—if not free! Check out the PrEP Locator if you are interested in protecting yourself, your partners, and your community by taking PrEP. Want to learn more? Get more info here.


2.      Watch webinars hosted by the Legacy Project.

The Legacy project works nationally to increase awareness of and build support for HIV prevention and treatment clinical and behavioral research by addressing factors that influence participation of historically underrepresented communities. Watch and share these webinars, many of which explore issues in the HIV epidemic among Black men who have sex with men.


3.      Be the Generation to End the AIDS Epidemic.
