Remember when you were first diagnosed with HIV?

You may have felt frightened, scared, and unsure about the future. Now you have the opportunity to give hope and advice to those who’ve been diagnosed recently by telling them, “You’ve got this.”

Upload your video to YouTube and then fill out the fields below. We’ll review your submission and post it on to share with the community.

In addition to providing hope, participants should know that Healthline will donate $10 for every video created to the Timothy Ray Brown Foundation (TRBF) of the World AIDS Institute. TRBF is the first and only organization in the 31-year history of AIDS created with the sole mission of finding a cure. Its central tenets are HIV cure awareness, education, securing funding for a cure, and supporting cutting-edge therapies.

How to Enter


How to Make a ‘You’ve Got This’ Video:

  • Be a YouTube member. In order to upload your video, you must have or create a valid YouTube account.
  • Make sure the sound on your video is clear. If no one can hear you, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and to project.
  • Don't backlight. Make sure light is on your face and not behind you (i.e. don't sit in front of a bright window).
  • Title your video. Use the title “You’ve Got This” and include your name and location (ex: “You’ve Got This: Tracy from Michigan”).
  • Tag your video. Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it (ex: “California HIV couple” or “HIV non-profit”).
  • Keep it short. Three minutes max.
  • Include a caption script. If you can, submit a transcript of your video as a caption file on YouTube. This will help to make sure that your video is accessible to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals, as well as those who use Google Translate.

Talking Points:

1) Keep it positive! The main goal of your video should be to inspire hope and provide useful advice to the recently diagnosed.

2) Be yourself. Speak from the heart.

3) How did you feel when you were first diagnosed? Were some of your fears unreasonable? What helped you learn to cope?

4) What is the best advice you could give to someone that was recently diagnosed? What do you wish you had known when you first found out?
