Acerca del evento

A sexual health campaign brought to you by Jolt Harm Reduction encouraging people to get tested and treated for STIs and HIV to protect their health and that of their partners.

We believe sex is good, fun, and enjoyable. That's harder to do when you're unsure of you and your partner's status.

Overall, an American has a 1 in 99 chance of being diagnosed with HIV at some point in his or her lifetime. However, the lifetime risk is much greater among some populations. If current diagnosis rates continue the lifetime risk of getting HIV is:

1 in 6 for gay and bisexual men overall

1 in 2 for African American gay and bisexual men

1 in 4 for Hispanic gay and bisexual men

1 in 11 for white gay and bisexual men

1 in 20 for African American men overall

1 in 48 for African American women overall

1 in 23 for women who inject drugs

1 in 36 for men who inject drugs

That's why Jolt is partnering with Lit On Fire Books to provide FREE sexual health screenings, FREE testing for HIV, Hep C, and other STIs. We will also provide FREE sexual harm reduction supplies, such as condoms, lubrication, and sexual health education.
