HIV/AIDS: In Their Own Words

Today, about 1 in 4 people living with HIV in the United States are women. Each woman touched by HIV/AIDS needs our support and our understanding. They need family, friends, and treatment. And they need us to listen to their stories.
This year we mark the 10th observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day(NWGHAAD) by listening to women whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS. Through the simple act of sharing their stories, these women embody the very heart of NWGHAAD: They offer support and hope, reduce stigma, share information, and empower women and girls to learn the importance of HIV/AIDS prevention, testing, and treatment.
National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. March 10, 2015. Our cause. Our voices. #NWGHAAD.
Meet Acintia, Elizabeth, and Rachel. I am inspired by them, and by all of the women who shared their stories with us.
