NATIONAL NATIVE HIV/AIDS AWARENESS DAY – March 20

National Native HIV-AIDS Awareness Day - March 20

NATIONAL NATIVE HIV/AIDS AWARENESS DAY

Many groups across the United States, such as the CDC and the National Native Capacity Building Assistance Network  are working in coordination by putting out press releases, displaying posters, and holding community events for the annual March 20th, National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  These groups hope to raise awareness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Each year, on National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day,  the communities of the American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians:

  1. encourage Native people to get educated and to learn more about HIV/AIDS and its impact in their community;
  2. work together to encourage testing options and HIV counseling in Native communities; and
  3. help decrease the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.
