Today Is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
February 7th is recognized annually as the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) - a nationwide community mobilization initiative that leads to capacity building to increase awareness, participation, and support for HIV prevention among African Americans.
The goal of NBHAAD is to motivate Black Americans at risk for HIV to get educated and tested, and to get HIV/AIDS stakeholders involved in prevention education programs, HIV testing, press conferences, community forums and other activities to raise awareness, participation and support for HIV prevention among Black Americans. Since 2001, federal, state, and local governmental agencies; community-based organizations; AIDS service organizations; public and private partners in prevention, treatment and care; as well as partners in the business, entertainment, and faith communities have all joined together in support of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
Please help us to prevent HIV in Black communities, one voice, one experience, one conversation at a time! Please register, and order supplies for your event(s) at http://www.blackaidsday.org/
