Since its formation in 2014, VIDA has worked hard to provide HIV education to help reduce and hopefully eliminate HIV among Latinx youth. Being present throughout the community is essential to reach as many members of our community as possible. VIDA does this in many ways, including informational booths at events all over San Diego including Latinx Pride, National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day, and Out at the Fair. We recently began providing free take-home HIV tests at these events.

All the money raised will provide scholarships for next year, more HIV test kits, and outreach to the community. AZUCAR!
