U.S. Department of Health & Human Services
Despite advancements in both the treatment of HIV and reductions in stigma surrounding a diagnosis, a care gap still exists among the communities who are the most affected. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, in partnership with prime contractor BETAH Associates, aimed to help to increase the rate of care uptake, specifically the use of viral suppression treatments, among people living with HIV.
We featured ten real stories of the triumph and challenges of starting, and continuing, care for HIV. Through antiretroviral therapy (ART), each of these individuals have reached an undetectable viral load (meaning the virus can’t be detected or transmitted), giving them the freedom to live life on their terms.
Becoming Works of ART
Each campaign hero was transformed into a work of art that reflected their personal HIV care journey and showcased their passions beyond a diagnosis.
We partnered with multi-disciplinary artist Temi Coker, who used his signature visual style to to masterfully turn each hero into a distinct masterpiece—a living work of ART.
The campaign rolled out across video, print, and social media, featuring lives lived with HIV filled with potential and promise, all thanks to the brave decision to seek—and continue—care.
Expanding our reach
For Hispanic audiences, the campaign transformed into “Celebro Mi Salud” (I Celebrate My Health), emphatically reinforcing the message with stories that truly connected and elevated more voices.
