National Faith HIV/AIDS Awareness Day #NFHAAD

National Faith HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

August 27

August 27, 2023, is National Faith HIV & AIDS Awareness DayExit Disclaimer (NFHAAD). NFHAAD is a day to engage faith communities to work together for HIV/AIDS education, prevention, treatment, care, and support, and to reduce and eliminate stigma and discrimination.

Reaching All HIV+ Muslims in America (RAHMAExit Disclaimer) and its partners have led the events of this awareness day across the nation, reaching thousands of people of various faiths across the United States to take a stand against stigma in their congregations to help raise awareness about HIV. RAHMA and its partners lead the planning for NFHAADExit Disclaimer . RAHMA held the first NFHAAD observance in 2017.

This year’s theme is “Faith Fighting for Freedom and Fairness.” Faith communities are encouraged to learn about the status of HIV funding in their state, nationally, and internationally, and take action to sustain and increase HIV prevention, treatment, and care services for all who require them. Faith communities fighting for freedom and fairness together can end HIV-related stigma and discrimination—one day, each year, until there is a cure!
