100 Black Women of Atlanta Holds Summit for Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 8, 2013

In observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on March 10, Clark Atlanta University's (CAU's) Health Services will provide HIV testing and a teen summit on March 9 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Carl and Mary Ware Academic Building, located on the CAU campus at 223 James P. Brawley Drive, SW. The National Coalition of 100 Black Women of Atlanta is sponsoring the summit. According to 2010 CDC statistics, women and girls comprise two-thirds of individuals diagnosed with HIV who were infected through heterosexual sex. Women of all ages who have contracted HIV through heterosexual contact or injection drug use make up one-fourth of all HIV diagnoses. Women of color are particularly affected, accounting for 64 percent of new AIDS diagnoses among women in 2010. For further information on locations for testing, visit
