Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, February 7
February 7th is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). NBHAAD is a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative to encourage Blacks across the United States to get educated, tested, treated, and involved with HIV/AIDS prevention. In 2012, HIV was the 14th leading cause of death for all Blacks and the 5th leading cause of death for both Black men and Black women ages 35–44. Learn more from the CDC about the rates of HIV/AIDS. Join with us in increasing awareness by utilizing the NBHAAD website to access an Event Planning Toolkit, which can assist you with planning an event or activity.
