While the statistics have improved since we began our work in 2009, we still fight to ensure that the rates of HIV drop even more. We are also rising to the challenge of addressing the systemic problem of poor overall health literacy among adolescents in DC schools. Over the next three years, we will be working to develop new modules for our curriculum and to train more athletes as facilitators. Thank you for being part of our movement!
