Act Against AIDS Launches First Disease-Specific CDC Instagram Account

CDC recently launched its Act Against AIDS (AAA) Instagram account. Started in 2009, AAA focuses on raising awareness of HIV among all Americans and reducing the risk of infection among the hardest-hit populations. The AAA account is the second Instagram account at CDC and is the only disease-specific account in the agency.

The AAA Instagram account will share photos and videos to “show” what AAA is doing to combat HIV while highlighting the people involved across the initiative to reach partners and populations at greater risk of HIV. This new Instagram page joins AAA’s suite of social media accounts, including Act Against AIDS on Facebook and @talkHIV on Twitter. CDC would like to encourage you to support AAA by following @actagainstaids on Instagram.
