World AIDS Day

Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day. It was created in 1988 to commemorate those who have passed away and to raise awareness about this devastating global crisis. This year's theme, "Getting to Zero: Zero New HIV Infections. Zero Discrimination. Zero AIDS-Related Deaths" is extremely relevant to our community. While African-Americans make up a mere 13 percent of the overall U.S. population, we account for almost half of all new HIV infections that are diagnosed each year. Knowledge is the key to fighting AIDS in Black America. So for the entire month of December, and the Rap it Up Campaign will provide you with relevant information about HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, facts and resources.
