AHF will match every dollar you donate to our team by AHF for this special event. Thank you for sponsoring me in the Florida AIDS Walk!
I am walking with the Latinos Salud team Now in its 10th year of serving the community, Latinos Salud provides free HIV/STD screening, life coaching, youth programs, peer education, support groups, mobile outreach, and case management in South Florida’s Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
Miami-Dade ranks first in the nation in its rate of new HIV infections, and Broward (the greater Ft. Lauderdale region) ranks second.
43,738 of Miami Dade and Broward residents are living with HIV/AIDS.
Miami Dade’s population is 65% Latino, Broward’s 25%.
We serve gay Latinos, anyone living with HIV, and anyone who identifies as transgender … and we offer free testing to everyone.
“Salud” means health, but our locations feel anything but clinical. Clients and staff worked together to design our first location, setting the tone for all of our programs. From the moment you enter, you’re treated like family. Our welcoming “living rooms” are used for cultural events, peer-led activities, and opportunities for making new friends, as well as for introductions to our health education and screening services.
Latinos Salud is working to break down the barriers, so that gay Latinos, their partners, and friends can all stay safe from, or live healthier with HIV.
