[Infographic] What the AIDS Epidemic Still Reveals About Us

December 01, 2012

This week's infographic, courtesy of Colorlines.com, shows that the contours of the AIDS epidemic remain unchanged.

In the U.S., meanwhile, the epidemic increasingly affects black gay and bisexual men and black women.

On World AIDS Day 2012, we stand with all those who are working to increase awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education about HIV/AIDS prevention, here in the U.S. and around the globe.
