Observing National Latino HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Summary: 
On National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, we recognize how far we’ve come, but also how much more work there is to do fighting HIV/AIDS in the Latino community

Today, we observe the 10th anniversary of National Latino AIDS Awareness Day.  It is a day where we recognize how far we’ve come, but also how much more work there is to do fighting HIV/AIDS in the Latino community. In commemoration of today, Mayra Alvarez, Director of Public Health Policy in the Office of Health Reform at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, posted a blog discussing the sobering HIV/AIDS statistics and this Administration’s commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS in the Latino community.
