The hard truth

ADOLESCENTS KNOW WHERE TO GET TESTED
100%
48%
HIV POSITIVE ADOLESCENTS ARE AWARE OF THEIR STATUS
100%
40%
REPORTED DIAGNOSES IN MIAMI-DADE IN 2015 WERE ADOLESCENTS
100%
15%

Miami holds the distinction of the highest rate of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) diagnoses in the nation. 

  • In Miami-Dade County there were 1,368 reported diagnoses
  • 15.3% (210 individuals) were 13 to 24 years of age.
  • As of 2012, only 40% of HIV positive adolescents were aware of their serostatus
  • Despite overwhelming demand, P2P is Miami’s sole clinic that provides free testing and treatment exclusively for adolescents
  • Only 48% of a nationally representative sample of 1500 youth knew “for sure” of nearby testing site locations.

 –> Delivering education and awareness is one of Promote 2 Prevent’s main goals
