About National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
February 7, 2017 marks the 17th year for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative targeted at Blacks in the United States and the Diaspora. NBHAAD was founded in 1999 as a national response to the growing HIV and AIDS epidemic in African American communities. The NBHAAD initiative leverages a national platform to educate, bring awareness, and mobilize the African American community. NBHAAD has four key focus areas which encourage people to:
- Get Educated about HIV and AIDS
- Get Involved in community prevention efforts
- Get Tested to know their status
- Get Treated to receive the continuum of care needed to live with HIV/AIDS
