GMHC's Statement on National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

2.7.2012 - In GMHC's 30th year, we commemorate National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day with a call to action.  We are strongly committed to ending health disparities for Black men and women who make up 37.85% of GMHC's clientele.  We know that the epidemic disproportionately affects Black women and young gay/bisexual men, and we call on policymakers and community leaders to focus on these affected populations in their HIV prevention and treatment efforts.

We commend the Office of National AIDS Policy for prioritizing Black Americans as a high-risk community in the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, and we urge elected officials, service providers, advocates, clergy and researchers to join us in the fight to improve health outcomes for all Americans living with and/or at risk for HIV.
