7th Annual HIV Awareness Walk

On Saturday, May 18, 2024, the Erie County HIV Task Force held the 7th Annual HIV / AIDS Awareness Walk. The Erie County HIV Task Force is a collaboration of local organizations and individuals dedicated to educating, supporting, and advocating for people living with HIV/AIDS and preventing the spread of infection. The HIV / AIDS walk provides a reminder to the local community that making personal health a priority is everyone's right. This year's awareness walk also took place on the annual HIV Vaccine Awareness Day. This day is focused on the potential of a future where a vaccine is introduced to the world to prevent the spread of HIV altogether. This year's event returned to Perry Square and enjoyed a lovely turnout, where participants enjoyed educational materials and testing opportunities via the PA Thrive Partnership mobile unit at the event. Awareness walk attendees also could take available prevention materials from the task force members Community HealthNet and the Erie County Department of Health. For more information on local services, testing, and free condoms, visit the Erie County HIV Task Force at ECHIV.ORG or follow their Twitter account @EriePAHIV and like their Facebook page.
