Add to Calendar

 


May 19 is National Asian and Pacific Islander (API) HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The Banyan Tree Project --a national campaign to fight HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination in API communities—is the lead for this day.


The Facts


According to the CDC, the number of APIs living with AIDS has climbed by more than 10 percent in each of the last 5 years. Sixty-seven percent of API men living with HIV/AIDS in 2005 are men who have had sex with other men. Eighty percent of API women living with HIV/AIDS in 2005 were infected through heterosexual contact.  For more information click: http://www.banyantreeproject.org/home.html
