WE ARE EMPOWERED. Grammy Award-winning artist and HIV advocate [and Soror] Alicia Keys teamed up with Greater Than AIDS to reach women about HIV/AIDS. One in four people living with HIV in the U.S. today is a woman. As mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, partners and people living with HIV, we have the power to change the course of this disease from our actions.
The AIDS prevention group released this video with Soror Keys just in time for National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, which was observed on March 10th.
“When I became aware that women accounted for one in five new HIV infections occurring in the U.S. each year, it shook me to the core and I realized this is an issue we ALL need to pay attention to,” said Alicia Keys in a press release. “Whether HIV positive or negative, we all have the opportunity to educate ourselves and make a difference.”
