Via a Pinellas County Government grant, the DOH-Pinellas HIV/AIDS Program launched a social media campaign with the hashtag #TheBurgCares. The campaign focuses on St. Petersburg (commonly called “The Burg”) with information about testing, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), treatment and overcoming the HIV/AIDS stigma. The campaign will also host a series of public service announcements featuring local leaders. #TheBurgCares is reaching out to high-risk populations on dating sites.
