National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Friday, February 7

February 7, 2014 marks the 14th year for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative targeted at Blacks in the United States and the Diaspora. There are four specific focal points: education, testing, involvement, and treatment.

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day has been and will always be a grass roots effort, that is shaped around the needs of those communities that work hard each and every year to make it a success. Each and every year, almost 20,000 Blacks in the United States test positive for HIV, that is an alarming amount if you multiply it times the last 10 years alone - that's 100,000 Blacks who are now living with HIV or may have died from AIDS related complications. It's time for us to do something different that inspires young and old, gay and straight, religious and non-religious, etc. to get on board with realizing the value and worth of Black life and acting accordingly.
