According to the US Department of Health & Human Services, in 2019, women ages 25-34 had the highest number of new HIV diagnoses. And Black or African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV, accounting for 54% of new HIV diagnoses.
Every year on March 10 — and throughout March — local, state, federal, and national organizations come together to shed light on the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls and show support for those at risk of and living with HIV.
This year marks the 18th annual observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD).
Health professionals at The Arlene Cooper Community Health Center on the campus of The Center offer free rapid HIV testing and counseling and testing for syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Anyone who tests positive for STD/HIV can receive treatment on-site. https://thecenterlv.org/
