For the fifth year in a row, Planned Parenthood has partnered with MTV, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Center for Disease Control to help reduce the rising number of STDs in young people. This campaign is called GYT (Get Yourself Tested).
Most STDs are curable. All are treatable. Getting tested is quick and painless. For example, a rapid HIV test is done by a swab of your mouth and you will have your results within 20 minutes!
Every April, each organization builds awareness through education; the encouragement of open communication between individuals and their partners, health care providers, and parents; and testing and treatment.
