About the
I AM  Initiative

Knowing your status is the first step.
The goal is to raise awareness so people take action to get tested for HIV.

Testing is the only way to know if you have HIV. When you know your status, you can connect to support, care and treatment. And ways to prevent getting HIV.
I AM is informed–developed in collaboration with community groups, mentors, leaders, advocates and healthcare professionals–many who live with HIV and are thriving. These are the remarkable people who want to help others find their own path, managing their health and wellness, providing practical ways to help get them there.
