HIV/AIDS Did you know?

Did You Know?

HIV/AIDS is now the leading cause of death worldwide for people 15-59 years old.

The disease is preventable; treatment is not available worldwide, and there is no cure.

HIV/AIDS is the greatest humanitarian crisis -- taking more lives than any other illness in the history of mankind.

Women and girls are more vulnerable and are being infected at higher rates.
