National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day

April 10, 2020, is National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day, a day to recognize the significant impact HIV has on the youth and the need for more education and prevention. According to the CDC, in 2017, youth age 13-24 made up about 21% of all the new HIV diagnoses in the US. Also, in 2017 the CDC states that 87% of youth diagnosed with HIV were young men and 13% were young women. Adolescents must become aware of the risk factors of HIV and take steps to protect themselves, such as wearing a condom during sex. Additional factors that increase the risks for adolescents getting HIV include: having STDs, having older sexual partners, using alcohol or drugs and exchanging sex for money, drugs or shelter.
