Project ACHIEVE kicks off its video campaign of recruitment for All About Me, a research study focused on young Black gay men and transgender women thoughts on HIV testing. The video campaign features 6 young men: Blake, Courtney, DaShawn, John, Kendall, and Scooda, asking their peers to complete an online survey and receive an Amazon gift card. “The video campaign goal is to put a face to the research and encourage other young men and transgender women to participate in this online survey,” said DaShawn Usher, Community Education and Recruitment Manager at Project ACHIEVE. “All About Me is a unique research study that will ultimately help our peers in having a personalized HIV test experience. Most people don’t know that there are different options when it comes to getting tested for HIV. We’d like to eventually have an app-like device that will assist in what type of HIV test people end up taking.” Usher said.

Everyone has an HIV status. Whether HIV positive or negative, our status shapes a lot of our experiences as we navigate through life. We have never known a world free of HIV and AIDS; however, research is proving that it is possible and can happen within our lifetime with options for both negative and positive people. For HIV negative people have PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) a daily pill that can prevent HIV.
