Why I Get Tested is a video project created to encourage people to get tested for HIV and other STDs. Its aim is to eliminate the stigma around getting tested by putting a face on this important and potentially life-saving health activity. We hope you will see yourself in these stories about why others get tested, and view the stories as a source of encouragement and empowerment for yourself. Everyone has a story about why they test for STDs; by listening to others’ and sharing yours, you help end the stigma attached to STD testing.
