FACTS > FEAR

In honor of STD Awareness Month this April 2021,

we're launching a series of community based virtual conversations around the landscape of STDs and HIV in San Diego, and why your sexual health matters now more than ever before. (Yep, even during a pandemic.)

WHY NOW?

As we fight COVID-19 as a nation and city, our fight against STDs and the HIV epidemic is still raging. And with less people testing for STDs and HIV during lockdown, more San Diegans are going undiagnosed and untreated – spelling out (another) public health crisis.

COVID-19

IMPACTS STDS

the pandemic has greatly hindered efforts to diagnose and treat STDs and HIV.

TAKE ACTION

This STD Awareness Month, become a sexual health advocate and help San Diegans access the STD and HIV testing and treatment they need during the pandemic. Together, we can combat STDs and HIV, and eradicate stigma once and for all.

ATTEND A VIRTUAL EVENT

Every week in April, we are hosting a livestream highlighting the importance of sexual health with community leaders from San Diego's LGBTQA+, Black, Latinx and Gen Z communities.

DIGITAL ADVOCACY
 

STD Awareness Month marks a unique opportunity to educate communities on what STDs are and how they impact San Diegans' lives. We've created shareable social media posts to help you help your community.
