AIDS is a problem for Hispanics, too.
It’s difficult for our families to talk about drugs and AIDS. And it is not our nature to openly discuss issues like teen sex, homosexuality and bisexuality. We were brought up with traditional values. Even among our immediate family, we don’t talk…we want to, but it’s just not that easy.
AIDS is serious. We need to talk about it openly. Our children are at risk for HIV (the name of the virus that causes AIDS).
We can help you get the conversation started.
If you’d like more information on the relationship between AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases, call the National AIDS hotline. 1-800-342-AIDS. The hotline for the hearing impaired is 1-800-AIDS-TTY.
