National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is March 10

Mar 09, 2021 | Julia Zigman

Did you know? Women accounted for almost 1 out of 5 new HIV diagnoses in the U.S. in 2018, and nearly a quarter of the 1 million people living with HIV in the U.S. are women. HIV disproportionately impacts Black women and transgender women in the United States, and they often face stigmas related to HIV status, gender, gender identity, and ethnicity. While the rate of HIV diagnoses in women has decreased in recent years, thousands of women are still diagnosed with HIV each year.

In observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and National Women’s History Month, share these resources with your community and read more about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women in the U.S:
