Wednesday, March 01, 2017 by Communications
March 10th and 20th are days of national observance to encourage people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and to raise awareness of its impact on women and girls and Native Americans.

March 10th National Women and Girls HIV Awareness Day

Today women account for more than 1/4th of persons living with HIV/AIDS, and the majority of these women are 15 to 39 years of age. As of 2015, there were over 9,000 women and girls living with HIV in Illinois.

March 20th National Native American HIV Awareness Day

Despite having the smallest population, American Indians and Alaska Natives have the 3rd highest rate of AIDS diagnoses in the U.S., and women account for 29% of the diagnosis in this population.

Throughout the year, please pray for those living with HIV/AIDS and all those affected by it.
