DESCRIPTION

World AIDS Day

Inspiring our Community

Securing Our Health and Well-Being

On December 5th, 2015 Center on Halsted will acknowledge World AIDS Day from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. by bringing together individuals to commemorate strides made in HIV/AIDS research, prevention, and outreach work while inspiring a generation to live in supportive communities and advocate for their own health and well being.

Chicago, and Center on Halsted, has much to be proud of with the recent publication of a report by the Chicago Department of Public Health which states that the number of new cases of HIV and AIDS diagnosed annually in the city has dropped by 46% and 43% over the past ten years, respectively. However, our work is not done. The same report shows that over the past five years, 20-24 year olds in Chicago are the only group continuing to see a rise in new HIV infections.

Join us, and other community service providers, as we inspire individuals to take their own health and well-being into their hands.  Center on Halsted will be joined by partner agencies to offer free HIV and STI testing, as well as other health screenings, and breakout sessions throughout the day to promote healthy living in the LGBTQ community.
