Since the early 1980s, an estimated 36 million people have died from AIDS-related illnesses. Houston has the most people living with HIV/AIDS in Texas, a reality with vast consequences. Join us to remember those we have lost due to HIV/AIDS, and to raise awareness of how important it is to know your status and the facts about how to protect yourselves and others, and to ensure
everyone has access to testing, prevention and treatment. Together we can end the epidemic.
During this World AIDS Day event, Legacy Community Health displayed the names of those we have lost to the AIDS epidemic. World AIDS Day Testing Hours at Legacy Community Health - Montrose took place from 4:00 – 8:00 PM
