• American interest in and travel to Cuba is at an all-time high: an estimated 140,000 Americans traveled legally to Cuba in 2018 and an additional 50,000 found a way to “sneak” in. • Increased interest in all things Cuban is reflected on the big and small screen in the US through movies like Oscar-winning Fresa y Chocolate (Strawberry & Chocolate), and The Motorcycle Diaries, TV shows like Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and Netflix’s Four Seasons in Havana, and documentaries like Azucar! The Life of Celia Cruz and The Cuba Libre Story. • 36.9 million people were living with HIV around the world in 2017, and an estimated 940,000 people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2017. • Thousands of Americans still die every year from HIV/AIDS; in 2014, 12,333 Americans with HIV died of any cause and 6,721 died from causes directly attributable to HIV.
