Introducing: “Our Voices in the Fight”

Created by:




This February,  the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) celebrates Black History Month with a new series, “Our Voices in the Fight.”

Globally, 35 million people are living with HIV and here in the United States the virus continues to disproportionately impact African-Americans and other minorities. In Washington, D.C. alone, close to 3 percent of the population is HIV-positive and minorities represent nearly 75 percent of the number of people living with HIV. This is a trend that is mirrored across the United States and globally.

Each week, we’ll bring you insightful content about the HIV/AIDS landscape in the African- American community, and share how you can get involved with EGPAF’s work to curb the AIDS epidemic worldwide.

Stay tuned throughout the month for special guest posts from Ziggy Marley, Jamar Rogers, and our partners at Advocates for Youth, and Whitman-Walker Health.
