Latinos account for 21% of all new HIV infections in the United States, and Latino gay and bisexual men bear the greatest burden of HIV infection.

A new bilingual campaign is encouraging HIV testing among Latino gay and bisexual men.

The campaign, called REASONS/RAZONES and developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), offers a website and Facebook page with information on HIV, how to get tested, and how to take action.

You can find a nearby test site by texting your zip code to KNOW IT (566948).

The campaign also features bilingual videos that show Latino gay and bisexual men share their reasons for getting an HIV test, which is fast, free, and confidential.
