National HIV/AIDS Observance Days Message

A number of national and global observances are held annually to help us understand and fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The Department of Health and Human Services is using all of its resources to combat the disease, and one way it is doing so is by supporting these observances, which help raise awareness and spread information about HIV/AIDS.

It is important to know the facts, how to prevent being infected, and how to live with the disease. We need to continue to talk and learn about HIV/AIDS, and the observances listed here provide an excellent opportunity for discussion and information sharing. Our goal is to provide timely information and resources for these awareness days.

  • National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness and Information Day (February 7)
  • HIV Vaccine Awareness Day (May 18)
  • National HIV Testing Day (June 27)
  • National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (October 15)
  • World AIDS Day (December 1)

We encourage you to visit this Web site throughout the year and to click on the icons above to download materials, educational tools, and information on the Department’s support of these observances. We hope the resources and information will assist your efforts to educate, motivate, and mobilize your local community in the fight against HIV/AIDS!
