February 7 is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

AIDSinfo joins individuals and organizations across the nation in observing National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The awareness day is set aside each year to acknowledge the disproportionate burden of HIV/AIDS in the African-American community. In 2009, according to CDC, African Americans represented 14% of the U.S. population but accounted for 44% of all new HIV infections.

To learn more about HIV/AIDS and African Americans, please explore our National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day webpage [en español].
