National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day February 7

Blacks are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. While making up only 13 percent of the U.S. population, they
account for more than 49 percent of AIDS cases. AIDS is now the leading cause of death for Black women ages 25 to 34, and the second leading cause of death for Black men ages
35 to 44.
