National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is held on March 20. This event in the second decade of the month March is annual. Help us
Every year, on 1 December, the world commemorates World AIDS Day. People around the world unite to show support for people living with and affected by HIV and to remember those who lost their lives to AIDS.
Observed annually on the Spring Equinox, National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 20) is a national community mobilization effort designed to encourage American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians across the United States and territorial areas to get educated, get tested, and get involved in HIV prevention, care and treatment. The inequalities which perpetuate the AIDS pandemic are not inevitable; we can tackle them.
