National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day - 2021-03-10
What is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day?
March is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Month. This day is dedicated to empowering women and girls with knowledge and information on HIV and AIDS. Women are often overlooked in this conversation. Women are more likely to contract HIV than men, and they are also at a higher risk of transmitting the virus to their children during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HIV diagnoses in women are down 21%. However, there were 7,000 new cases of HIV in 2017. Young women ages 13-24 make up nearly half of these new cases. In addition, most women who get HIV are black or Hispanic. When it comes to preventing HIV, abstinence is the only way to prevent infection. Using a condom every time you have sex reduces the risk of infection. Americans want to support people with HIV/AIDS. As a result, they will change their Facebook profile picture to show that they support the cause. People will also go to clinics to get tested.
