About the Arizona HIV Needs Survey
The purpose of the HIV Needs Survey is to gain a better understanding of current access to testing, treatment and prevention services. By sharing needs, experiences and barriers, your feedback will help to highlight what has gone right with HIV services and how they can be improved.

A chat with Brooklyn Diazz
RipplePHX: “What made you want to be a part of this campaign?”
Brooklyn: “For one, I always check my status – it’s so important. And two, I have so many family members and community members who are positive, and they need these services. So without all of this, no one can get their status and no one can get checked, so I want to do my part.
RipplePHX: “Why do you think it’s important for people to take this survey?”
Brooklyn: “Without things like this, the State doesn’t know what kind of help organizations need to help the community. So it’s extremely important that everybody to take it if they can.”
RipplePHX: “What do you wish other people knew about HIV that they seem to keep getting wrong?”
Brooklyn: “That when someone [living with HIV] is undetectable, they can’t transmit it [HIV] to you.”
RipplePHX: “If you could go back in time and tell a younger version of yourself something you now know about HIV, what would it be?”
Brooklyn: “To be more open-minded. My first interactions with HIV was with one of my best friends from high school. And I jumped on the bandwagon with everyone – like – ‘oh my god’. But, you know, I’m old, and back-then, there wasn’t a whole bunch of information. So if I could tell my younger self something, it would be, ‘reach out to that person and see what you can do to help them, and try to get them more information because you don’t know when they’re not going to be here.'”
