Share Health Information

Although library staff cannot answer specific questions about medical conditions or treatment options, they can guide their community members to trusted health information so that they can make educated decisions about their health and that of their loved ones.

To supplement any health program or event, download and share trustworthy and free resources from the National Library of Medicine, affiliated government agencies, and non-profit associations to help stop HIV stigma and promote testing, prevention, and treatment.

You can safely share with HIV
