Let's Bring AIDS Awareness

World_Aids_Day_RibbonLet's bring AIDS Awareness. It is really important for Latinos to educate themselves more about AIDS and STDs. And for organizations, clinics, and schools to continue bringing AIDS awareness. The CDC (2014) reports:

  • More than 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 7 (14%) are unaware of their infection.
  • Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSMs), particularly young black/African American MSM, are most seriously affected by HIV.
  • By race, blacks/African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV.
  • Blacks represent approximately 12% of the U.S. population, but accounted for an estimated 44% of new HIV infections in 2010. They also accounted for 41% of people living with HIV infection in 2011.
  • Latinos are also disproportionately affected by HIV.
  • Hispanics represented 16% of the population but accounted for 21% of new HIV infections in 2010.
  • Hispanics/Latinos accounted for 20% of people living with HIV infection in 2011.
  • Disparities persist in the estimated rate of new HIV infections in Hispanics/Latinos.
  • In 2010, the rate of new HIV infections for Latino males was 2.9 times that for white males, and the rate of new infections for Latinas was 4.2 times that for white females.
  • Since the epidemic began, more than 99,281 Hispanics/Latinos with an AIDS diagnosis have died, including 2,310 in 2011.
At the end of the day, the only one you can trust is yourself. No glove. No love. Ponte el sombrero.
