March 10th is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. WE all have a role to play in HIV prevention, regardless of your status.

In the United States, about 23% of people living with HIV are women and, in 2018, women made up 19 percent of new diagnoses.

Disparities in continue to exist. In 2018, Black women accounted for 57% of new cases. The Poverty, stigma and fear of discrimination prevent some women from getting tested or seeking care.

According to CDC’s most recently available data, 2% of the new HIV diagnoses were among transgender people.

The newest MCH Bridges episode highlights the effects of structural racism and the history of our food system in the United States. It discusses the demonization of cultural foods, the use of Eurocentric dietary standards as the primary baseline for nutrition recommendations, and how these continue to contribute to the gap in nutrition inequality we see today.

Episode 9 – “Centering the Soul Ties to the Food We Eat: A Strategy for Equity in Nutrition Services.”

Tune in now to hear from guest speaker Sadé Meeks, food activist and founder of Growing Resilience In The South (GRITS) Inc., as she shares her concept of food as resistance and how we can empower communities through a holistic approach in the interconnected complexity of identity and food.

July is & month! Did you know that kids bear approximately 88% of the disease burden due to climate change? Learn how to protect kids’ health from climate change in this fact sheet: https://bit.ly/APHACEHClimate

During the summer months, cities can get 1.8 to 5.14 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than surrounding areas, creating an urban heat island effect. Extreme heat can be brutal on anyone, but children and pregnant people are especially vulnerable to the negative health impacts of this and other aspects of climate change.
