Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

June 8, 2013


According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Caribbean is disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. This burden heightens the risk of HIV for Caribbean communities in the United States and its territories. For this reason, the nation observes Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on June 8.

This annual observance serves to highlight the fact that the adult HIV prevalence rate in the Caribbean is approximately 1%, which is higher than in any other region in the world outside of sub-Saharan Africa.
