HIV testing videos aimed at multicultural communities in SA

PEACE Multicultural Services, December 2016

Three new campaign videos have been made especially by and for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

They provide a positive spin on knowing your HIV status, whatever it may be. The theme is Get Tested, Get Treated, Live Longer.

“Testing is the key to a healthy journey, and it is important for everyone to get tested for HIV. Knowing your HIV status gives you peace of mind and the opportunity to start treatment early if needed. Testing in South Australia is easy, free, fast and confidential.

Contact PEACE Multicultural Services on 8245 8100 for further information and support.

Together we can make a positive change.”
