CDC highlights lifetime risks for contracting HIV

By Kierra Gray

One in two black men, one in four Latino men and one in 11 white men who are gay or bisexual have a risk of contracting HIV in their lifetimes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released these latest statistics recently.

The AIDS Foundation of Chicago helped host an event called PrEP4Love at West Point Baptist Church in Chicago in conjunction with Women’s History Month and National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

Kierra Gray brought three women from the AIDS Foundation of Chicago into the studio to discuss HIV and safer sex practices.

Artists and performers collaborated with local organizations in Chicago to promote safer sex practices at an event called PrEP4Love.
