What can talking do? A lot. By talking about HIV, just talking, we can break the silence and help prevent the spread of HIV. Black people are 13 percent of the population but we are nearly half of all new HIV infections. And the impact among young African American adults has been devastating. We need to do something, all of us, especially young people. We can start by talking about HIV with our partners, our family, and our friends. We can break the silence. Talk about using condoms. Talk about getting tested, knowing your status, and knowing the facts. Whatever you do, talk about HIV because the more we talk about it, the more we know.
