South Florida’s HIV epidemic

By November 30, 2012Blog Post

World AIDS Day is tomorrow, Dec. 1. If you live in Florida — particularly South Florida — then maybe you’re aware that there is an HIV epidemic in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

We partnered up with Broward Regional Health Planning Council this month to create some engaging infographics that highlight the HIV epidemic in Broward County — the second highest HIV rates in the state.

And a little fact: In 2010, Broward ranked #2 in the country for population-adjusted, living-with-HIV rate. And the county was ranked #1 for population-adjusted, living with AIDS rate.

Moral of the story: Get tested. Get treatment. Get educated.
