EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS & VIDEO: Blair Underwood Kicks Off AIDS Testing Caravan

Actor Blair Underwood is known for his activism, and he took part in announcing the kick off of the AHF’s U.S. HIV Testing Caravan earlier today.

In an effort to boost AIDS awareness and HIV prevention and testing efforts in some of the hardest hit regions of the United States, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the nation’s largest non-profit AIDS organization, which currently operates the largest community-based HIV testing program in California, will kick off a three week, fourteen-city cross country HIV testing tour in one of its popular AHF/Magic Johnson Mobile HIV Testing Units. AHF is permanently relocating one of the mobile testing units from Los Angeles to Washington, DC, to provide free, easy-to-access rapid HIV testing in various neighborhoods throughout the nation’s capital, where it was recently reported that the HIV prevalence rate has surged past 3% — higher than in Lagos, Nigeria.

Kudos Blair!
