We are urging individuals to define what Make (+) More Positive means to them through art. By turning the plus sign into an artistic symbol of optimism, Alere wants to know what living positively means to you. Alere makes positive more positive by screening for HIV quickly and accurately at the point-of-care, as well as providing the necessary tools to ensure proper treatment, monitoring and management.
