Did you know that Black women are nearly 3X as likely to be diagnosed with HIV as their white and Hispanic/Latina counterparts? How about one of the strongest contributors to HIV risk? You guessed it...LACK OF AWARENESS.
At Black Girl Health, we pride ourselves in helping minority women make well informed decisions that improve their health through health guides, action plans, outreach events and SOCIAL CAMPAIGNS. Our first Social Awareness campaign every year is #popthequestion and it occurs on March 10th aka National Women & Girls HIV Awareness Day. It is focused on prompting as many minority women as possible to take control of their sexual health by giving them the tips and tricks to talk to their partner about their HIV status and asking them to get tested.
This year we've partnered with the National Library of Medicine
, Miss Black US Ambassador
, and Social Media Influencer @MissJayDMV
for the entire campaign to reach as many minority women as possible to take part
but we can always use YOUR help to spread more awareness. We would be honored if you could take our message further with a tweet or a post on your Facebook or Twitter account on March 10th. All you have to do is pledge support to our campaign with a click of a button and you will automatically join our campaign. On March 10th, the campaign message will appear on your account as well as hundreds of other supporters thereby raising the awareness we need to educate and empower minority women across the country to take control of their sexual health and #popthequestion.
