National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day is observed annually on September 18 to recognize the impact of HIV on issues facing the aging population with regards to HIV prevention, testing, care, and treatment and to call attention to their needs and concerns as they aim to live well with HIV.
The AIDS Institute is the organizational lead for this observance. This year’s theme is, “Living with HIV, Aging Like We’re Not.”
We encourage our blog readers to talk about HIV and aging. Here are a few of our communication resources you can use to support your awareness day efforts:
- HIV.gov’s National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day page
- A recent blog post highlighting aging and HIV resources, including CDC’s surveillance report on HIV and older Americans and an HIV and aging toolkit for health care providers
- HIV.gov's Aging with HIV page
Today, we encourage you to join the conversation about HIV and aging.
