AIDS Awareness Day

National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day
October 15

National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day is observed annually on October 15 to increase public awareness and support and to encourage HIV testing and to increase access to care for persons living with HIV infection in Hispanic/Latino communities. The 2019 theme for National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day is “Living with HIV or not...we're fighting this together.”

HIV continues to be a serious threat to the Hispanic/Latino community. Hispanics/Latinos made up 7% of Wisconsin of the state’s residents but 17% of new HIV diagnoses reported in 2018. The rate of new HIV diagnoses among Hispanics/Latinos in 2018 was more than five times that of Whites. An estimated 1,170 Latinos are living with HIV in Wisconsin, including those unaware of having HIV.
