Hello, and thank you for visiting my Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival webpage! We're aiming high for this year's 5K fundraising walk, taking place in April 2021.
Why support my team?
- South Florida's Miami-Dade and Broward counties rank first and second in the nation for their rates of new HIV infections.
- The CDC reports that new HIV cases are rising rapidly amongst gay Latinos, in South Florida. Latinos now represent 68% of Miami-Dade's new HIV cases (up from 50% a decade ago), and 31% of Broward's (up form 18%)
- Latinos Salud is the only gay, Latino HIV agency in the state of Florida with free, walk-in services.
What happens with your donation?
Latinos Salud's free services include: HIV rapid testing, STD testing, PrEP intake and prescription, linkage-to-care services, Ryan White case management, anti-stigma campaigns, life coaching programs, youth HIV prevention programs; peer leadership health promotion programs, HIV+ support groups, condom and safer sex supply delivery service to businesses serving the gay community, and outreach both on line and at late night venues.
