Description

HIV is a deadly virus. Like the virus that cause the common cold, it has to have a host to live. The host is the human body. One in four people with HIV do not know they have it. So knowingly or unknowingly the virus spreads. If left untreated the person will likely develop AIDS. More than half of the people in the US with HIV are African American, yet we make up only 17% of the total population. AIDS is the number one killer for black males and females between 20-24. Our young females make up the largest percentage of new cases. We don't like to talk about it. We don't want to know the facts. We don't do what we have to, too often, to prevent the spread. My people, we have got to TALK. For real, TALK, ask questions, be honest, get tested, and tested again. NATK is a way to get the conversation going. Lets spread some good information.; Lets trust one another enough to help one another. Come one join Not Afraid to Know (about AIDS)
