15 is National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, a grassroots social
media campaign aimed at raising awareness of the impact that
HIV and AIDS has had and continues to have on the Latino community.
This year's theme is "Latinos Unite! Let's stay Healthy!
Get Tested for HIV!" Latinos in the United States have
the second highest AIDS case rate in the nation by race/ethnicity
and continue to account for a greater proportion of AIDS cases
than their representation in the U.S. population overall.
Below is a collection of online resources on HIV for Latinos,
including information on HIV testing and locations that provide
for local HIV testing locations in Wisconsin or call 1-800-334-2437
