National Latino AIDS Awareness Day

October 15, 2013

On October 15, the nation observes National Latino AIDS Awareness Day. The theme of this year’s observance is “Commit to Speak” (“Comprométete a Hablar”). Individuals and organizations across the United States will speak out on October 15 to raise awareness of the continuing burden of HIV/AIDS among Hispanics/Latinos. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 22% of the diagnoses of HIV infection among adults and adolescents in the United States and 6 dependent areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, the Republic of Palau, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) from 2008 to 2011 were in Hispanics/Latinos.
