October is LGBT History Month! We thank those in the LGBTQIA+ community and allies who fought throughout the HIV/AIDS epidemic to bring the prevention methods, education, and standard of care you see today into existence. Caring Communities could not be who or where we are without those who fought for human rights and HIV/AIDS healthcare rights with passion and compassion in the face of unspeakable loss and seemingly unending strife. Thank you for fighting for the rights of every LGBTQIA+ person who came after you, especially those who are living with HIV/AIDS today. You made a difference, and it is an honor for us to carry on the fight against HIV/AIDS.

From the website: "The annual Caribbean-American Health/AIDS Awareness Day was created to provide Caribbean-Americans with resources, HIV/AIDS health education, evaluation, and opportunities for involvement. The goal is to beat the odds and to ensure that we cultivate a health conscious atmosphere within our communities. This day is a part of a National effort to get Caribbean-Americans to get educated, get evaluated, get treated and get involved with their health decisions, as HIV/AIDS, Diabetes, Cancer, High Blood Pressure and Cardiovascular diseases continues to negatively affect the Caribbean communities resulting in premature deaths."
