State health officials to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS among women and girls - Kokomo Perspective

INDIANAPOLIS - National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a nationwide initiative coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health to raise awareness of the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.

The event gives community organizations from across the United States an opportunity to come together to offer support; encourage discussion; and to educate women and girls about prevention, the importance of being tested, and how to lead a normal, healthy life despite being infected.

Since HIV was first reported in the early 1980's, more and more women have become infected with the disease. Today, nearly one in four Americans living with HIV are women.

The Indiana State Department of Health in partnership with Alternative Health Therapy, the American Heart Association, Harrison College, the Indianapolis Urban League, Ivy Tech College, Marion County Health Department, Silvia's Hair Salon, and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
