Today is the last day of the XIX International AIDS Conference. If we remember one thing from this conference, it should be this: 72 percent of new HIV infections among young people in sub-Saharan Africa are girls. 72 percent. What are we doing that has left young women so vulnerable? When we’re looking at numbers that skewed, we have to ask what we’re doing wrong, and we have to fix it. Women and girls are the blind spot in HIV prevention, and we have to make sure we everyone sees what’s really happening. Share this infographic*. Forward it, post it, like it, tweet it, pin it. We can’t create an AIDS-free generation without women, and we can’t let young women be an epicenter of the virus.
