National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is February 7. Now in its 18th year, NBHAAD is a day to increase awareness about HIV among blacks/African Americans and encourage people to get involved in prevention efforts, get tested, and get treatment if they are living with HIV.
What Can African Americans Do?

Protect yourself and your partner. Today, we have powerful tools to prevent HIV and help people living with HIV stay healthy.
