Greater Than AIDS


Greater Than AIDSSM, a new national movement seeks to inspire hope and promote the possibility of change in the AIDS epidemic facing Black America through the united actions of individuals, families and communities. The campaign promotes individual action to prevent and reduce the spread of HIV, beginning with knowing one’s HIV status.

Passing the Test, a report released today by the Black AIDS Institute examines the challenges and opportunities of HIV testing in Black America. As compared with other race and ethnicities, Black Americans are both more likely to be infected with HIV and die of AIDS. Early diagnosis and treatment saves lives, yet many Black Americans living with HIV do not know their status with some studies showing that rate as high as one in two.

“We have a stake in one another... what binds us together is
GREATER THAN that drives us apart... if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done...”

Barack Obama, December 1, 2006 (World AIDS Day)

Test 1 Million, a corresponding campaign produced by the Black AIDS Institute, kicks off an effort to test one million people in one year by next National HIV Testing Day (June 27, 2010). Visit www.test1Million.org to pledge to be 1 in a Million.

Greater Than AIDSSM is a campaign of the Black AIDS Media Partnership (BAMP), a sustained commitment among major U.S. media companies to work together to address AIDS in Black America. The Kaiser Family Foundation is providing day-to-day management for BAMP, with technical support from the Black AIDS Institute, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and a number of major civil society partners. The campaign is organized in collaboration with Act Against AIDS, a multi-year effort by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help refocus national attention on the HIV/AIDS crisis in the United States.
