National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was first observed in 2007. This day is observed on the first day of Spring each year. The 2022 observance is recognized on March 20th.
The theme for 2022 is “Reflection. Celebration. Rejuvenation.”
The National Native HIV Network plans the observance each year. The observance is a national mobilization effort designed to encourage Native people (American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians) across the United States and Territorial Areas to get educated, get tested, get involved in prevention, and get treated for HIV.
