(BPRW) National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – February 7
(Black PR Wire) ATLANTA, GA — Every year, on February 7, individuals and organizations across the nation participate in National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) to promote HIV prevention, testing, treatment, and community involvement in black/African American (hereafter referred to as black) communities. Year-round, organizations across the country take part in collective efforts to address HIV. On the awareness day, many of those efforts are highlighted in the media, online, and on the ground in communities across the country.
This year’s NBHAAD theme, “We’re in This Together,” highlights the importance of social support—from friends, family, colleagues, and partners—when addressing HIV in the black community. “We’re in This Together” can tie to an array of messages about prevention, testing, treatment, and care and to many resources available from the Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign. Let’s Stop HIV Together promotes the idea that we all have a role to play in ending the HIV epidemic. Partners and organizations can use the “We’re in This Together” theme as an anchor phrase to highlight ways to support various efforts from testing for HIV to speaking out about stigma in the black community.
