today is world aids day.   it’s been decades and there still is no cure.  millions of people are infected with HIV/AIDS and counting.  there have been some amazing advancements but this very preventable disease has not been stopped.  so what can you do?

1- get tested; a primary reason people are still becoming infected is because they are getting the virus from someone who does not know their hiv status.  to learn where to get tested visit www.aids.gov

2- make sure to talk to your loved ones about HIV/AIDS.  learn more about how someone can become infected and what the treatment options are.  if you know someone who has HIV, support them in their journey.

3- donate your time and efforts to the fight.  there are so many great organizations  who can use your energy and/or money.  organizations like the Young Women of Color Health Advocacy Coalition.  or it could be as simple as downloading music on your iphone.  apple is partnering with the (RED) campaign, so you can donate to HIV and AIDS treatment and prevention with Apple Pay transactions, iOS game purchases, and red accessories starting today.
