October 15 is National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2016, Hispanics/Latinos accounted for 26% of new diagnoses of HIV in the United States and 6 dependent areas. Stigma, language barriers, and limited access to health care are among the factors that contribute to the higher rates of HIV infection in Hispanic/Latino communities.

October 15 is National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day—a day to raise awareness and promote prevention and treatment of HIV in the Hispanic/Latino community. To learn more, visit the AIDSinfo National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day webpage [en español].
