On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.
While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.
In observance of NWGHAAD, they are back with their 4th Annual Rock the Red Pump™ Campaign! he campaign’s goal is to generate conversation in blogosphere about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women. (please note text was taken from website.)
