HIV Testing: Capital City Pledge to Test

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Join WLBT in supporting the The Capital City Pledge to Test, a new social media campaign in Jackson designed to erase the stigma associated with HIV testing.

The Capital City Pledge to Test is for everyone in Jackson.

The more people who pledge and share, the more HIV testing becomes just another routine health care task.

Jackson has one of the highest HIV rates in the United States, specifically among African American men.

The Capital City Pledge to Test is a social media campaign designed to de-stigmatize HIV testing in Jackson, by sharing a pledge to get tested for HIV on Facebook and other forms of social media.

The Capital City Pledge to Test website is https://v2.proofpilot.com/en/pledgetotest  and with it Jackson residents and students can make a pledge to get tested for HIV and find a testing location.

Most importantly, those pledging can share that pledge with all their friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Later, participants will get a reminder to get a test and they can even confirm that they did so and share on Facebook or Twitter.
