Mexican HIV/AIDS campaign Oct. 15
The AIDS Foundation of Chicago's Salud y Orgullo Mexicano campaign seeks to connect gay and bisexual men of Mexican descent to HIV testing and care with peer health navigator specialists at the Erie Family Health Center, 1701 W. Superior St.
The campaign, in its second year of activity, is trying to reach the men through strategically placed bus-shelter advertisements, digital ads and social media.
In order to further inspire the men to take control of their health, there will be a social-media day of action on National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, Oct. 15. The goal is to get 100 people to call, submit online forms or get tested for HIV at the Erie Family Health Center on that day.
