Resources on Latinos and HIV
Ryan Hicks, Staff, Wisconsin HIV/STD/Hepatitis C Information & Referral Center

October 2011

October 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 testing.
