National Women’s & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
“Among women living with HIV in America, almost 9 in 10 have been diagnosed, but only 32% have the virus under control.”- amfAR
March 10th marks National Women’s & Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day!
Women face unique challenges to HIV prevention and HIV care. Women account for approximately 50% of HIV diagnoses globally.
Women in developing countries have little access to HIV prevention tools like PrEP and condoms. Cultural norms in many countries do now allow prevention measures.
Women are often care-takers of children and family members, so accessing health care for themselves is not always on the forefront of their minds.
