HIV/AIDS remains a significant public health challenge in the US, especially within the Hispanic/Latino community. According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of the end of 2021, 271,212 Hispanics were living with HIV in the US, accounting for 29% of the new HIV diagnoses, despite comprising only 19% of the total US population.

Being the largest and fastest-growing minority population in the US, coupled with the persistently disproportionate rates of HIV testing/screening and low uptake in HIV PrEP, it is crucial to prioritize Hispanics in HIV prevention and care.

Aligned with our commitment to achieving health equity, the National Hispanic Medical Association has partnered with the CDC’s Let’s Stop HIV Together (Together) to increase HIV awareness. 

Through our collaboration with the CDC’s Let’s Stop HIV Together (Together), we effectively engage with physicians and similar organizations to disseminate culturally competent HIV resources and address inequities faced by people living with HIV.
