 Ending The HIV Epidemic

About the HIV Prevention Video Series

In this four-episode video series, follow the interconnected stories of Donte, Avery, Pamela, and Sidney, as they navigate casual dating and sexual health. This video series aims to promote HIV prevention, dispel stigma about HIV, and foster open conversations about sexual health and safer sexual practices. With this video series, we are continuing to raise awareness about HIV and empower our community to combat HIV effectively. 

Why a Video Series? 

The HIV Prevention video series is an innovative strategy to engage younger adult audiences about sexual health and HIV. This engagement is particularly important in Prince George's County, which has the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses in Maryland. The HIV infection rate among residents 13-34 is alarming, with 53.95% of the 258 new HIV diagnoses in 2022, occurring in this age group. To address this, the county is part of a bold national initiative to reduce new infections by 90% by 2030.  The video series is one of Prince George’s County's numerous strategies to increase awareness about HIV and connect residents to HIV prevention resources and support.
