National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 10, 2015


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the end of 2010, women accounted for one in four people living with HIV infection in the United States. Compared with women of other racial/ethnic groups, African-American women and Hispanic/Latino women are disproportionately affected by HIV. 
 
These facts underscore the importance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, which is observed on March 10. The annual observance joins together organizations and communities in a nationwide effort to promote HIV prevention, testing, and treatment to protect women and girls from HIV.
