This year’s theme for the fifth annual NLAAD is United We Can Stop HIV and Prevent AIDS. According to the NLAAD organization, Latinos compromise about 15.3% of the U.S population but 24.3% (almost 1/4) of the new HIV infections in the US. Approximately 19% of Latinos living in the United States are living with HIV/AIDS. Only united can we resolve the adverse effects HIV/AIDS have on our community. Here are some touching stories of Latinos living with HIV/AIDS. Please join La Salud in the lobby of the School of Public Health tomorrow 10/15 from 10-1:30 for some interesting information.
