b condoms Promotes Teen Participation for National HIV Testing Day


 
PRLog - June 27, 2014 - NEW YORK -- b condoms today announced its support for HIV testing initiatives and events taking place today in recognition of National HIV Testing Day, held each year on June 27th. The goals of b condoms initiatives are to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS among teens and to encourage youth to get tested.  HIV testing and prevention education play an important role in reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS across the U.S.
American teenagers, particularly those in underserved communities, have lower rates of testing.  Youth aged 13 to 24 accounts for an estimated 26% of all new HIV infections in the United States.  Almost 60% of youth with HIV in the United States do not know they are infected.


Key highlights of b condoms HIV Testing Day initiatives include:
- Targeted distribution of b condoms to high school students in the highest impacted communities to address the challenge of access to condoms for teenagers.
- Circulation of preventive educational material about condom use and care.
- Support of nonprofit organizations that are specifically working with youth in prevention and treatment services in the country’s highest impacted areas.

"National HIV Testing Day presents a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness and encourage youth to get tested," said Jason Panda, President and Chief Executive Officer of b condoms. "Testing is critical to stopping the spread of HIV and b condoms continues to combat the stigma and discrimination that keep young people from prevention and treatment services.”
b condoms are available online at Walgreens.com, Walmart.com, Drugstore.com, Amazon.com, and Whole Foods Market.
