AIDS Alabama's Latinx Outreach Team

Did you know that AIDS Alabama has a Latinx Outreach program? Learn more about this important work, the Alabama Latino AIDS Coalition (ALAC), and the need for the Alabama Latino Access Center in this article from Bham Now. Read the article here.

Why is this work important?

As Alabama's Hispanic and Latinx population grows, so does the need for culturally relevant health care, translation services, and support networks. According to AIDSVu, the rate of Hispanic/Latino males living with an HIV diagnosis is 1.9 times that of White males and the rate of Hispanic/Latina females living with an HIV diagnosis is 3.6 times that of White females in Alabama. Supporting all Alabamians and making sure they are able to live healthy, independent lives is a vital part of AIDS Alabama's mission.
