The campaign reminds people that "regardless of age, people can be at risk for HIV if they have unprotected sex or share needles." The images reflect the diversity of women and men in terms of age, race and culture.
Regardless of your age, you can be at risk for HIV if you have unprotected sex or share needles. (Click the links below to view the individual palm cards.)

The HIV/AIDS awareness campaign, First Ladies Care, targets black churches and features images of the wives and/or female leadership on fans, with messages that urge women and men in the congregation to support each other to talk more about HIV prevention, testing and safer sex. First Baptist Church of Crown Heights, Brooklyn is the first in the campaign and First Lady, Mrs. Ellen Norman, is the first spokesmodel.
