Date:5/22/2010

AIDS Action Committee will mark the milestone of the 25th AIDS Walk in Boston by honoring 25 leaders whose contributions to the fight against AIDS over the last two-and-a-half decades have been invaluable.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2010 -- AIDS Action Committee, Inc. (AAC), New England’s largest AIDS service organization will hold the 25th AIDS Walk Boston , Boston’s annual charity walk benefiting AAC. To mark the 25-year milestone, AAC is honoring 25 individuals (listed below) whose contributions to the fight against AIDS over the last two-and-a-half decades have been invaluable.

To date, 30,537 Massachusetts residents have been diagnosed with HIV and there are approximately 600 new infections each year. It is estimated that 21 percent of those infected with HIV are unaware of their status. Gay and bi men (35%) and injection drug users (24%) still account for the largest proportions of HIV infections in the state.

“Since 1999, rates of HIV infection in the Commonwealth have declined by half,” Haag said. “That’s terrific news, but we need to get the infection rate to zero. We need to have honest conversations about HIV status. We need to arm people with the tools and language that will help them stay safe. And we need to keep working to eliminate the shame and stigma that comes with an HIV/AIDS diagnosis.”

AIDS Walk Boston draws 10,000-15,000 participants; WCVB-TV StormTeam 5 meteorologist David Brown will emcee the event, which also includes a Wellness Festival and the
