FACTS > FEAR
In honor of STI Awareness Month this April 2021,
we're launching a series of community based virtual conversations around the landscape of STIs and HIV in San Diego, and why your sexual health matters now more than ever before. (Yep, even during a pandemic.)
As we fight COVID-19 as a nation and city, our fight against STIs and the HIV epidemic is still raging. And with less people testing for STIs and HIV during lockdown, more San Diegans are going undiagnosed and untreated – spelling out (another) public health crisis.

BLACK & LATINX
community residents in San Diego are disproportionately impacted by STIs and HIV.
gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis cases in San Diego have increased since 2019.
the pandemic has greatly hindered efforts to diagnose and treat STDs and HIV.
This STI Awareness Month, become a sexual health advocate and help San Diegans access the STI and HIV testing and treatment they need during the pandemic. Together, we can combat STIs 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.
STI Awareness Month marks a unique opportunity to educate communities on what STIs are and how they impact San Diegans' lives. We've created shareable social media posts to help you help your community.
The Facts Over Fear livestream series for STI Awareness Month wouldn't be possible without the support of our esteemed community partners.
