Today is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. I hope that everyone, both male & female, uses this day as a reminder and a challenge. A reminder that your life is in your hands - knowing your status and practicing safe sex every time is the key to remaining HIV-free. A challenge to get involved in some way - raise money, volunteer, educate others.
The Red Pump Project is an amazing project that is raising awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on girls and women. Please check out their blog to learn more about their activities, learn more about how HIV/AIDS affects girls and women, and what you can do to get involved.
Do you know your status? If you don't, today is a great day to find out. Knowledge is power.
