Today marks the 51st celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month, celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.

We honor those who have fought for equal rights to ensure that every person is free to live their life openly. We also celebrate the many achievements for the LGBTQ+ community towards this endeavor but recognize there is still much work to be done. Many in the LGBTQ+ community across the world experience lack of “fundamental rights and dignity in hospitals, schools, public accommodations, and other spaces.” ()

- 42% of LGBTQ youth, including more than half of transgender and nonbinary youth, seriously considered attempting su***de in the past year. Yet nearly half could not access the mental health care they desired. ()

- So far in 2021, at least 27 trans people have been killed due to violence in the US. ()

- There are 69 countries that have laws that criminalize homos*xuality. ()

- The United States and many other countries have restrictions on blood donations by gay and bis*xual men. ()

- 250 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in US state legislatures in 2021, states have enacted more anti-LGBTQ laws this year than in the last three years combined. ()

stands with those in the fight to ensure that every person is free to live their life openly. We will continue to use our voice to stand for improved health for everyone, everywhere.

Strides Against HIV/AIDS In The U.S. Falter As Resources Diverted To Fight COVID-19 04/25/2021

Delays in HIV testing and treatment caused by the shift to address COVID-19 have derailed our best efforts at ending the HIV epidemic. Communities of color and Southern states are likely to continue to carry a disproportionate burden of new HIV cases.

Strides Against HIV/AIDS In The U.S. Falter As Resources Diverted To Fight COVID-19 Experts fear steep declines in testing and diagnoses mean more people will contract HIV and die of AIDS. The problem is particularly acute in the South, the epicenter of the nation's HIV crisis.

In places where public health authority is strong, communities see lower rates of COVID-19 infections and deaths. When people trust public health leaders and their health providers, they achieve better health outcomes. Funding a robust public health workforce supports strong programs to protect communities and help people get and stay healthy physically and mentally. Those who have been unable to do their jobs from home have been at higher risk during the pandemic, placing physical, mental, and financial strain on millions of individuals. Protect essential workers by following CDC guidelines: stay home as much as possible, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, wear a mask, social distance, and get vaccinated. Although National Public Health Week is coming to a close, we will continue to prioritize and elevate public health every day. Share with us in the comments what you do to promote public health in your communities!

Community encompasses every aspect of our lives. Where we live, work, and learn has an enormous impact on our health and well-being, and local public health spending is essential for uplifting the health of our communities. Engage your community leaders and organizers on public health topics and support the work they’re doing to create change. The pandemic has shown us the importance of building up a sense of community and leaning on fellow community members for support. By investing in the public health of your local communities and strengthening social networks and connections, we can help improve the health of everyone, everywhere. http://www.nphw.org/NPHW-2021/Strengthening-Community

Building Bridges to Better Health
We may be physically distant from each other, but now it’s more important than ever to come together. That’s why our 2021 theme is “Building Bridges to Better Health.”

Making communities safe and healthy is public health’s top priority. COVID-19 has made that even more important. Even though we won’t gather in person, social media and virtual platforms make it easier than ever for us to connect, create and take action.
