HIV Equal

DNA Magazine - - THE MONTH IN A MINUTE -

In the USA, 26 per cent of all new HIV in­fec­tions are in the 13 to 24 age group and it’s es­ti­mated that 60 per cent do not know they are in­fected. Ac­tor, model and ath­lete Jack Mack­en­roth has long been open about be­ing HIV-pos­i­tive. He now joins Thomas Evans and a host of hot­ties for HIV Equal, a so­cial me­dia cam­paign to help en­cour­age people to be tested. Founded by Dr Gary Blick, HIV Equal takes the fear out of test­ing and aims for early de­tec­tion – key to bet­ter health out­comes and re­duc­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of in­fect­ing oth­ers.
