Through understanding target audiences concerns and fears, the Take Control HIV campaign dismantled stigma with precise messaging for each audience segment.
Take Control HIV Campaign Goals
Empower individuals who are living with HIV to seek treatment so they can live long healthy fulfilling lives.
Breakthrough stigma and educate the public on HIV, available treatment, and preventative options to stop the spread of HIV and encourage long term care.
With a unique approach, messaging celebrated diverse personalities and backgrounds to encourage a conversation without fear. Using transcultural messaging, we developed and displayed messaging in a variety of mediums to reach audiences in urban and rural markets, where access to care was most challenged.
“GAVIN has provided excellent services to our HIV ad campaign at every turn. They have been inclusive in their approach at outreach and extremely competent in their knowledge of HIV to further our message (they even went as far as to have their employees on the campaign take HIV 101 courses!). We are truly honored to have them as partners in our efforts to engage people living with HIV into medical care.”
SARA CARVAJAL – Take Control HIV, FHCCP HIV Program Manager
