Southern HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, founded in 2019 by the Southern AIDS Coalition, is an opportunity to raise awareness, dispel stigma, and promote HIV care resources in Southern states. This year, AIDSVu observes this awareness day with a new expert Q&A, updated infographics, and a refreshed Deeper Look page.
AIDSVu invites its users to explore these new resources to build a better understanding of the HIV epidemic in the South and advocate on behalf of communities disproportionately impacted by the HIV epidemic.
Check out AIDSVu’s resources:
- A series of new infographics highlighting data on HIV in the South.
- A Deeper Look at HIV in the South: a page dedicated to exploring the disproportionate impact of HIV in the South.
- New 2020 state-level PrEP use data and maps by race/ethnicity.
- ZIP code-level data showing HIV prevalence and new diagnoses (2020) for 43 U.S. cities, including cities in the South.
- Comparison maps of social determinants of health– such as poverty, high school education, median household income, income inequality, and people without health insurance.
- Service locators for HIV prevention, testing, and Ryan White care services, as well as enhanced service location sites for Stigma Reduction, Overdose Prevention/Reversal, Harm Reduction, and Trauma-Informed Care across the Deep South.
