World AIDS Day 2020

December 1, 2020

Today is World AIDS Day, which began in 1988. This day is dedicated to
raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV
infection and mourning those who have died of the disease worldwide.

Although there has been advancement in medications, in the
United States, HIV/AIDS disproportionately affects Black communities.
According to the CDC in 2018, African Americans accounted for 13% of
the US population but 42% of new HIV contractions.
