National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2008

February 7, 2008 marks the eighth annual National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). NBHAAD is a day dedicated to increasing awareness of HIV/AIDS in the African-American community. The goals of NBHAAD are to educate African Americans about HIV/AIDS and how it is transmitted, to encourage them to get tested, to motivate HIV-infected African Americans to seek proper treatment, and to inspire people to get involved in their community. 

Check out the new Department of Health and Human Services' National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day Web page, which includes helpful links to sites providing information on health disparities, HIV/AIDS statistics, and much more--all specific to African Americans.

AIDSinfo encourages you to participate in NBHAAD by sharing this information with others.
