On Aug. 29, 2018 community public health employees, HIV clinicians, and activists took a stand against HIV in black communities at the screening of the short film “90 Days.” The film follows a young couple and takes on HIV stigma and love, while highlighting biomedical prevention strategies.  

The film features actors Teyonah Parris and Nic Few. “90 Days” is part of a greater initiative to help black women utilize biomedical HIV prevention strategies through a collaborative campaign called “Black Women and PrEP.” PrEP, or Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, is a medicine, which if taken daily, can prevent HIV infection. The film was supported by the Black AIDS Institute, Walgreens, and CDC's Act Against AIDS prevention program.
