Test. Love. Repeat. Health Dept. launches sexual health campaign

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has launched a second phase of the successful Philly Keep On Loving sexual health marketing campaign called: Test, Love, Repeat. The campaign is scheduled to appear across the city on billboards, buses, bus shelters, newsstands, and in new locations where you don’t normally see advertising, like barber shops, hair and nail salons, and laundromats. Test, Love, Repeat will also be promoted across various social media channels. The campaign will also appear in Spanish (Chequearte, Amar, y Repitir) across all venues and social media channels. Test, Love, Repeat encourages all Philadelphians to get tested for HIV and to make an on-going plan for repeat testing.

It is estimated that almost 10% of people living with HIV in Philadelphia, nearly 2,000 individuals, do not know they’re HIV positive. Nearly 52% of young people between the ages of 13 and 24 who are living with HIV do not know their HIV diagnosis. Testing is the only way to know your HIV status. There are many ways to test for HIV. People can ask for an HIV test as part of routine medical care, visit a community-based HIV testing agency for rapid, walk-in HIV test, or order an HIV Home Test Kit from the campaign website.

Additionally, attached are several images that are used in the campaign and that are available as printed posters for your organizations. Please contact Caitlin Conyngham, Senior HIV Prevention Coordinator (caitlin.conyngham@phila.gov) to arrange poster pick up.
