Live With It. Get Tested! Campaign
HIV. LIVE WITH IT. GET TESTED! is a social marketing campaign
designed to address the national crisis of HIV infection in
young people. Its goal is to bring HIV-positive and at-risk
adolescents into care by offering free, confidential youth-friendly
HIV counseling and testing.
Take advantage of these resources on various health issues
related to adolescents. Some of these resources were authored
and/or coauthored by members of the AAP staff (including several
books, book chapters, and articles).
Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Health Resource Center (GLAHRC)
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) adolescents
and those who are questioning their sexual identity face additional
challenges in meeting their needs for health and mental health
care. These vulnerable youth are generally invisible within
the healthcare system despite the fact that many are at-risk
for a range of unique health and mental health concerns.
