National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 10, 2016

Women in the United States continue to share the burden of HIV. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately one in four people living with HIV in the United States are women. And many of these women are not getting the care they need. CDC estimates that of all women living with HIV in 2011, only 45% were engaged in care, and only 32% had achieved viral suppression.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a nationwide event to promote HIV prevention, testing, and treatment to lessen the burden of HIV in women and girls. Browse the links on this page to learn more about this annual observance and to find HIV/AIDS-related information specific to women and girls.
