A lot of my neighbors, friends, family members and lovers are Black. Each day, I have to face the sobering fact that too many of them, particularly my gay and bisexual brothers, are living with HIV/AIDS and unaware of their HIV status.

I am motivated in the fight against HIV/AIDS because I am at risk for HIV/AIDS. As an African American single woman, I am at risk for HIV/AIDS every time I make a decision to engage in sex.

HIV/AIDS affects everyone.

Right now, 1 out of every 300 people in the United States has HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. There is no cure for AIDS, and there is no vaccine to prevent HIV. Our best hope to end the AIDS epidemic is through biomedical prevention research including vaccines, microbicides, and pre-exposure prophylaxis. You have the power to support the search for safe and effective ways to prevent HIV. HIV/AIDS affects everyone.

With more than 35 million people worldwide living with HIV and more than 20 million lives lost due to HIV/AIDS-related illness, the need for a HIV prevention research remains urgent. Many agencies are working together to develop and test biomedical prevention strategies.
