World AIDS Day 2016

December 1 is World AIDS Day, a day to recognize the progress made in HIV prevention and treatment and re-commit ourselves to an HIV-free future. More than 36.7 million people are living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, including more than 1.2 million people in the U.S. According to AIDSVu, in 2013, the number of African American Montgomery County residents living with diagnosed HIV was almost 30 times the number of white Montgomery County residents living with diagnosed HIV, although African Americans make up roughly 17% of the population. AAHP continues to work hard to address this alarming disparity by providing education, counseling, testing and other resources for African Americans in Montgomery County. Learn more here.
