National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Prevention is Power
These are the facts:
Blacks are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. While making up only 13 percent of the U.S. population, they account for more than 49 percent of AIDS cases. AIDS is now the leading cause of death for Black women ages 25 to 34, and the second leading cause of death for Black men ages 35 to 44.
Yall need to:
get tested for HIV
practice safe methods to prevent HIV
decide not to engage in high risk behaviors
talk about HIV prevention with family, friends, and colleagues
provide support to people living with HIV/AIDS
National Women's and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
