HIV/AIDS Awareness Days

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 10, 2019

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that at the end of 2014, 23% of all people living with HIV in the United States were women. According to CDC, around 12% of women living with HIV do not know that they have the virus.

Compared to women of other races and ethnicities, black women are still disproportionately affected by HIV. According to CDC, nearly two-thirds of women who received an HIV diagnosis in 2016 were black.
