Latinxs experience unique barriers to health care, often leading to delayed HIV diagnoses and increased risk of developing AIDS. This speaks to the need for further education and health care to specifically address the concerns of these populations. The Latino Commission on AIDS (LCOA), the Hispanic Federation and many other organizations organize the annual National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD). The Clinician Consultation Center (CCC) at UCSF is proud to support NLAAD by highlighting resources clinicians can use in service to their Latinx and/or Spanish-speaking patients.
