About National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was first observed in 2007. This day is observed on the first day of Spring each year.
The National Native HIV Network plans the observance each year. The observance is a national mobilization effort designed to encourage Native people (American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians) across the United States and Territorial Areas to get educated, get tested, get involved in prevention, and get treated for HIV.
It is also a day to honor those who are living with or affected by HIV, as well as to honor those who have passed as a result of AIDS-related complications.Find out more
