GYT Materials

Responding to the fact that young people account for half of the 20 million new sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occurring in the U.S. each year – and most don't know they are infected – the GYT: Get Yourself Tested campaign is a youthful, empowering social movement to encourage young people to get tested and treated for STDs and HIV. GYT increases awareness about STDs and how to prevent them; links young people to STD testing services; and promotes a more open dialogue with partners and health care providers.

For a generation accustomed to communicating in shorthand, the GYT acronym presents STD testing in a context that is familiar and relatable to young people. GYT encourages testing as an act of pride, not shame, and promotes an open dialogue about STDs by encouraging young people to get themselves tested and spread the word about the campaign.

Schools, clinics, and health departments across the country have successfully implemented GYT events. And we invite you to do the same. Below are several materials that can be download and printed to help increase the visibility of your GYT events.

For more information about the campaign, please visit www.gytnow.org exit disclaimer. For tips on how to implement GYT events in your community, please visit http://www.cdcnpin.org/stdawareness/GYT.
