Tuesday, February 7, is the 18th annual observance of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). The Strategic Leadership Council, a community-led group that sets the direction for NBHAADExit Disclaimer, announced that this year’s theme is “I Am My Brother’s and Sister’s Keeper. Fight HIV/AIDS!” It’s a call to action for all of us. We’ve put together a list of resources from and our federal partners to help you get involved with #NBHAAD.

First stop:

The NBHAAD Awareness Day page has resources such as the NBHAAD logo, fact sheets, and other materials from the community and across the U.S. Government. We’re also featuring CDC’s DoingIt campaign and their resources that you can use and share.

In addition to NBHAAD resources, we also have basic HIV facts about HIV prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Know the facts and share them (along with your encouragement and support) with friends and family members who have not been tested for HIV, might be at risk, or are living with the virus.

Use and share the HIV Testing and Care Locator
