National Latino AIDS Awareness Day

October 15, 2015

The October 15 observance serves to heighten awareness of the disproportionate burden of HIV among Hispanics/Latinos. 

Socioeconomic factors such as poverty and language barriers may contribute to Hispanic or Latino HIV infection rates. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the estimated new HIV infection rate among Hispanics/Latinos in 2010 in the United States was more than 3 times as high as that of whites.
