Latinas: Tips+Tools


Every 9' minutes someone in the United States is infected with HIV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Latinos are 18% of individuals living with undiagnosed HIV infection.

"Every person has the responsibility to change the course of this devastating epidemic by learning the facts, getting tested routinely, and getting connected to care," commission leaders say.
