1 in 6 Latinos living with HIV/AIDS don’t even know they have it.

With 10,292 Latinos newly diagnosed with HIV in the U.S. in 2016, this population group needs access to culturally competent care and prevention education.

To celebrate Natinoal Latinx AIDS awareness day (Oct. 15) and Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15), let’s use #SaludTues on Oct. 15, 2019, to tweet about Latinos and HIV/AIDS

We’ll open the floor to your stories and experiences as we explore:

  • Why is HIV/AIDS such a big issue for Latinos and how we can prevented it?
  • What role do culture and other factors play in HIV/AIDS prevention among Latinos?
  • What stories, resources, and tips are available for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS?

Be sure to use the hashtag #SaludTues to follow the conversation on Twitter, share your stories and share resources that can help more Latinos prevent HIV/AIDS.

#SaludTues is a health equity tweetchat especially focused on the Latino population at 12p CT/1p ET every Tuesday hosted by the @SaludAmerica program at the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio.
