National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Last Date:


The National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) initiative began in 1999 as a grass roots effort that aimed  to raise the awareness regarding HIV and AIDS prevention, care and data-driven education in communities of color.  As the challenges and solutions associated with HIV have evolved, NBHAAD has modified it's theme, focus, and methods of national support.

Why should we test?

  • Because 1 in 2 people with HIV have had the virus at least 3 years before diagnosis.
  • Because about 40% of new HIV infections come from people who don’t know they have HIV.
  • Let's encourage friends and family to get tested at least once and people at high risk should be tested at least once a year.
