National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 20, 2016


National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is observed every year on March 20. This day recognizes the impact of HIV/AIDS on American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 14% of HIV-infected people in the United States do not know that they are infected. However, among American Indians and Alaska Natives the figure is closer to 19%, and among Native Hawaiians (and other Pacific Islanders), the figure is 25%.
