Why AIDS Awareness Matters to You

This generation has never known a world without HIV/AIDS and they are slowly becoming the most affected population. Each month, 1,000 young people are diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and currently more than 76,000 young Americans are living with the virus. More needs to be done to educate young people about this preventable disease.
