National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD), held annually on March 10, hopes to raise awareness of the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.

Today, about one in four people living with HIV in the U.S. are women 13 or older. Only about half of women living with HIV are getting care, and only four in 10 of them have the virus under control.
