National Black HIV Awareness Day




National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is observed annually on February 7 to increase awareness, spark conversations, and highlight the work being done to reduce HIV in Black or African American communities in the United States and show support for people with HIV in these communities.

Don’t let anything keep you from knowing your status. When people receive unconditional support, they may be more likely to get tested for HIV, seek care, and stay in treatment. Let your family and friends know they’re not alone—even if you’re physically apart. We’re in this together.
