HIV/AIDS and Women

As we celebrate International Women’s Day and the many strides women across the globe have made, we are also reminded of the difficult and complex  fight ahead. While we have made much progress in the fight against HIV and AIDS, women continue to bear the blunt of the epidemic. 50 percent of the world’s population living with HIV are women. Think about this number for a minute. 

We know for sure if we do not provide sufficient treatment to those affected, many of them will die. This is one of the many reasons why the U.S. should continue to fund HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs. Because without them, we will lose our sisters, mothers, daughters, and friends.
