Sustaining AIDS Awareness

AIDS prevention and education is still vital to keeping the public healthy and safe. Despite the fact that AIDS and HIV still effect millions of Americans annually, the general conversation about the disease has plateaued. Continued vigilance is the only way to continue the fight to save lives, and the internet provides a great platform to keep the conversation going.

Nature and Context

Encouraging young people in places where AIDS is common to organize community events and dialogues to help raise awareness about the prevention of the disease and supporting them with online materials will ensure the discussion about this deadly disease is sustained. An estimated 1.2 million people in the United States had HIV at the end of 2018, the most recent year for which this information is available. Of those people, about 14%, or 1 in 7, did not know they had HIV. This is why regular testing is so important. Each new generation must take up the fight to make sure the following generations remain educated, safe and healthy for years to come.
