October 15: National Latinx HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2018

October 15, 2018 is National Latinx HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This day is designed to bring awareness to the impact of HIV on the Latino community in the United States. In 2013, Latinos accounted for 21% of all people living with HIV in the U.S., even though Latinos only make up 17% of the country’s population. Health disparities impact Latino communities on many levels. Let’s all use this day to change health and wellness for Latino communities all around the country!
