What is AIDS Education Month?
June 2015 will mark the 21st year that Philadelphia FIGHT has hosted AIDS Education Month (AEM), a series of events throughout Philadelphia to increase awareness of AIDS and to bring people together to find strategies to combat the virus. Over 10,000 individuals are directly reached by AEM every June.
When is it?
Throughout the month of June starting with the Opening Reception, closing with the Community Cookout, with many events in between.
Where is it?
Various locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
Why Should You Get Involved?
In the United States, over one million people are living with HIV/AIDS and one in five doesn’t know their status. In Philadelphia, the rate of HIV cases is approximately four to five times the national average. We can stop these infections from occurring with increased awareness, accurate HIV Information, and access to resources.
Join us this June for an incredible month of educational events. There are many ways to get involved in the FIGHT!
