Today is World AIDS Day, and I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the importance of today, and all of the incredible people behind the scenes working tirelessly to make a difference.
World AIDS Day: Miami Top HIV Hotspot
My amazing friend, Victoria Beckham, became a UNAIDS global goodwill ambassador three years ago. Victoria has traveled on field trips to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Ethiopia and Kenya working with some truly inspirational people.
Did you know that Florida leads the nation in AIDS-related deaths? In 2016, Miami was named the nation’s number two HIV “hotspot” with 42.8 infections for every 100,000 residents.
Infection rates in Florida have increased every year since 2012, and Miami-Dade and Broward Counties led the nation in new HIV infections in 2014.
