This National HIV Testing Day (NHTD), the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Public Health, STD/HIV Program (SHP) will be introducing, Start It! Louisiana, a statewide, non-stigmatizing campaign that will be implemented from June 24 through June 27, 2019 that encourages conversations about optimal holistic health. The Start It! Louisiana campaign seeks to encourage meaningful conversations and support individual decisions about one’s health. The campaign’s slogan is, “It doesn’t matter how, it matters that you do,” whether it is getting tested for HIV, getting into care, exercising, eating healthier, starting pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), using condoms, or visiting the www.louisianahealthhub.org website as a resource for information.
Everyone may be at a different stage in their health care journey. Start It! Louisiana strives to motivate and encourage Louisiana citizens to Start It!!!
