Testing by the Hundreds campaign close-out event on Wednesday, June 27 from 5:30-8:00 pm at the VisiArts in Rockville. This event will commemorate the collaborative efforts of the African American Health Program (AAHP) and over 20 organizations (see list below) dedicated efforts in HIV awareness and testing in Montgomery County.

 

AAHP developed the Testing by the Hundreds campaign to address the rising number of HIV diagnoses in Montgomery County. The campaign is designed to educate the public on the seriousness of HIV/AIDS, its prevalence within the County, and the stigma attached to this disease. As a part of the campaign, community leaders are encouraged to become advocates for HIV/AIDS awareness and promote HIV testing. After 1 year of HIV awareness and testing, the campaign has reached its goal of having over 1,000 African Americans in Montgomery County tested for HIV and educated on HIV prevention.
