Who we are...

HIV Big Deal is an ongoing, web-based HIV Prevention campaign to inspire and motivate gay men to have safer sex and to get tested for HIV.
The centerpiece of HIV Big Deal is a dramatic web video series about Josh, a young gay man living in Manhattan and dealing with all the dilemmas gay men face - love, friendship, sex, health, and everything in between.
The series was created by Public Health Solutions and the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University, and was developed in response to the continuing HIV epidemic among gay men.
