“There are 1000 new cases of HIV diagnosed among young people each month.”
Today marks the inaugural National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. According to organizers, this day was designed “to educate the public about the impact of HIV and AIDS on young people as well as highlight the amazing work young people are doing across the country to fight the HIV & AIDS epidemic.”
This mission is close to the hearts of Red Pump founders, Karyn and Luvvie. During their first call-in show on CAN-TV, they took the opportunity to discuss the impact of the disease on young people and what we can do to curb the epidemic in this age group. Check out the video below.
