HIV/AIDS Awareness Days

October 15 is National Latinos AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD)

National Latinos AIDS Awareness Day PosterThe Latino Commission on AIDS (LCOA) Exit Disclaimer, the Hispanic Federation Exit Disclaimer and many other community-based organizations come together on this day to increase awareness of the devastating and disproportionate effects of AIDS in the Latino community, and to encourage HIV testing and push for support from public officials and religious leaders.

Hispanics/Latinos, represent only 15% of the total U.S. population, but make up 18% of new HIV infections. Among Latinos, men make up the vast majority of new HIV infections (76%), but Latino women are also at disproportionate risk for HIV. They are infected with HIV at a rate four times greater than white women.
