The Problem

HIV/AIDS is running rampant in North Carolina, especially the county that I live in. In North Carolina, the 13-29 age groups accounted for 48% of the estimated incidence proportion. Sexually transmitted infections, including (HIV), disproportionately affect African American adolescents and young adults. One in five (21%) individuals living with HIV is unaware of their infection. According to the Center for Disease Control, an estimated 56,300 Americans are infected iwth HIV each year.

Plan of Action

I would like to start a sticker and Teen Safe Sex Pledge Program. This program will bring awareness to the HIV/STD epidemic. My goal is to get Teen Sage Sex Pledge stickers in the hand of area high school students. Stickers will remind teens about the dangers of unprotected sex, and premartial sex. This initiative will truly enable us to educate and decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases with Durham/Wake Counties in North Carolina.
