The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has released Positive Spin, a comprehensive digital educational tool that uses personal storytelling to promote the importance of getting people with HIV into treatment. The project was developed by AIDS.gov with input from federal agencies, health care professionals, persons living with HIV, and community-based HIV organizations.
Positive Spin features the personal experiences of five HIV-positive, gay black men who have successfully navigated the HIV care continuum, from diagnosis to treatment and, ultimately, to viral suppression, which helps those with HIV stay healthy, live longer and dramatically reduce their chances of passing the virus to others. The site is mobile-device friendly, and includes information about care, easy-to-understand infographics, and links to federal resources.
