National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

About the Day

March 10 is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service, Office on Women's Health is the lead for this day. The 2009 theme is "HIV is Right Here at Home".

The Facts

In 2005, women represented 26 percent of new AIDS diagnoses, compared to only 11 percent of new AIDS cases reported in 1990. Most women are infected with HIV through heterosexual contact and injection drug use.

Women of color are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. AIDS is now the leading cause of death for Black women ages 25 to 34.
