The Fall HIV Observances are Coming. Help is Here.
HIV.gov strives to provide the HIV community with timely and usable resources and information about each national HIV Awareness Day. The HIV.gov Events section includes a landing page with upcoming national observances presented in order of their approach. For each observance you will find graphic and digital resources, the theme, and information on the lead organization. The hashtag for each observance is now prominent, making it easier to join the digital conversation. As we identify new resources and events, we’ll add links and downloads, so please bookmark this section.
Here are the links to each Fall observance page within HIV.gov:
National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day – September 18
Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – September 27
National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) – October 15
Here are a few ways to use HIV.gov resources for your planning:
As part of our redesign, we updated our Event Planning Guide. It continues to be relevant for the HIV observances across the seasons and offers key questions for your consideration.
Wondering what happened for last year’s observance? Want to grab some ideas from another observance? You can locate past blog posts from HIV.gov using the topic tag for each observance day. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the HIV.gov home page or Events section, and then choose the tag for one of these observances.
To get upcoming blog posts about the Fall observances, we encourage you to sign up to get relevant articles emailed to you.
Awareness Days can be an opportunity to explore and expand your digital presence in support of your year-round mission.
