October 15th is National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day
Each year we commemorate this day by raising HIV awareness and promoting HIV testing, prevention, and education. We also remember the struggle, the many lives that have been lost, and the footprint the epidemic made—and continues to make—among the Latinx community. This year’s theme is “Ending HIV is Everyone’s Job,” “Erradicar el VIH es Labor de Todos.” Check out NLAAD’s informative site and resources at http://nlaad.org.

What We Do
Syphilis continues to affects Montanans in 2018. Most of those at risk for syphilis have been men who have sex with men. Twelve cases have already been reported in 2018, four of them were women of childbearing age. Syphilis can have serious complications, especially for the unborn child. Find out where to get tested at state-sponsored clinics below or speak to your health care provider about risk, prevention and testing.
