In honor of HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day, HRSA invites all recipients, stakeholder organizations, and federal partners to participate in a HRSA-initiated Twitter thread. The thread begins Tuesday, June 1, through Saturday, June 5, which is both HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day as well as the 40th anniversary of when the first five cases of what later became known as AIDS were officially reported. The #HRSAHonorsHIVSurvivors thread is intended to promote advancements in HIV care and treatment and HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, honor the lives of people with HIV, and support people with lived experience in sharing their stories.
Over five days, @HRSAgov will send five messages tied together by their connection to HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day. Please consider jumping on HRSA’s Twitter thread and posting your own content that focuses on your program’s goals/accomplishments/experiences. Your content does not need to relate directly to HRSA’s Twitter thread content that day. Please include #HRSAHonorsHIVSurvivors and visit the thread each day and like/retweet the posts throughout the week-long campaign.
HRSA’s hope is that by having Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients, federal partners and our national stakeholders contributing to the same Twitter thread, together we can engage/expand our reach and partnerships across the HIV care and treatment landscape and continue our efforts to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S.
