AIDS Walk Atlanta: Community, History and HIV Prevention

Atlanta, GA, USA

On this hot September day, thousands of people gathered in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park for the 2019 AIDS Walk Atlanta. Bringing the community together for a day of celebration, fundraising, and remembrance for the 29th year, AID Atlanta’s dedicated team of staff and volunteers provided on-the spot HIV testing with INSTI. The event included runners raising up to $750,000 for local causes, some of Atlanta’s most popular artists performing for an energetic crowd, and sponsors, including bioLytical, providing education, information and fun activities for the attendees.

We promote HIV testing as a normal thing to do every 3 months for MSM who are sexually active with multiple partners – it’s like getting an oil change or a haircut.
