Latinx AIDS Day

Latinos, who comprise 18% of the U.S. population, bear a disproportionate HIV/AIDS burden. In 2015, Latinos represented 24 percent of new HIV diagnoses; most of these cases are among Latino men who have sex with men (MSM). Overall, Latino HIV cases declined from 2005 to 2015 but increased among Latino MSM.

Uptake of PrEP is lagging among Latinos, according to CDC
