National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day | womenshealth.gov
March 10 was National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) , an annual observance that sheds light on the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls. This year’s theme was HIV prevention starts with me. With improved treatments, there may be a misperception that HIV is no longer a serious health issue. But people across the United States are still contracting HIV, and women remain vulnerable to infection.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, though HIV diagnoses among women have declined sharply in recent years, around a quarter of people living with HIV in the United States are women. Many women and girls living with HIV are not getting the care they need. Visit the Office of Women’s Health to get more information about women and HIV.
