Web-based project educates and empowers through personal stories of Louisiana women and others across the South

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seventy percent of people living with AIDS in Louisiana are minorities, with AIDS being the leading cause of death for African American women ages 25-34 today. On Wednesday, October 22, The Southern AIDS Coalition (SAC) and Test for Life will launch the Southern AIDS Living Quilt (http://www.livingquilt.org), a website featuring real-life video stories from southern women on the frontlines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Living Quilt project brings to life the impact of HIV/AIDS in the South, highlighting the disproportionate impact on women, particularly women of color, and providing critical information about routine testing and prevention services and the importance of early diagnosis.
