About one in four people living with HIV in the United States are women and girls 13 and older. Only about half of women living with HIV are getting care, and only four in 10 of them have the virus under control. Women face unique HIV risks and challenges that can prevent them from getting needed care and treatment. Addressing these issues remains critical to achieving an HIV and AIDS-free generation. This year we are making a special effort to ask Churches and Houses of Worships to join our effort.
On March 9, 2019, Educating Teens about HIV/AIDS Inc. will observe National Women and Girls HIV/ AIDS Awareness Day to bring attention to this important public health issue. The purpose of the observance is to raise awareness of the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls. The 2019 theme is “Together for Love: Stop HIV Stigma.”
Educating Teens’ Mother-Daughter Circle and Friends, invite you and your friends’ participation to help call attention to the impact of HIV on women and girls. This event will be held at the University Club; 123 University Place; Pittsburgh, PA 15213; 11:30 AM. Please see the attached documents and respond by February 28, 2019.
