The Office on Women’s Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services leads National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (#NWGHAAD).

In the United States, about 23% of people living with HIV are women and, in 2018, women made up 19 percent of new diagnoses. The highest number of new diagnoses were among women ages 25 to 44. Advances in testing, treatment, and prevention have resulted in progress towards the nation’s goal to end the HIV epidemic by 2030.

The theme for NWGHAAD 2022 is: Prevention and Testing at Every Age. Care and Treatment at Every Stage. This year’s theme reinforces the 1st and 2nd goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which focuses on the prevention of new HIV infections and improving HIV-related health outcomes of people living with HIV.
