National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 20, 2017


March 20 marks both the first day of spring and National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 1 in 5 American Indians and Alaska Natives who were living with HIV in 2012 were unaware of their HIV-positive status. Thus National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is set aside each year to promote HIV testing and awareness in Native communities.
