Young adults are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that as many as half of all new HIV infections in the U.S. occur among those less than 25 years in age. As a result, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) has formed a Junior Board to engage young adults in the fight against the epidemic.
Members of the Junior Board support AFC's overall mission and activities by acting as ambassadors in the fight against HIV/AIDS and by engaging other community members in their 20s and 30s to make a difference.
