Introducing: “Our Voices in the Fight”
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.
