HIV/AIDS Awareness Days

HIV Long-Term Survivors Day

June 5, 2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that at the end of 2016, 1.1 million people in the United States were living with HIV. Many of these people have been living with HIV for many years.

Treatment with HIV medicines (called antiretroviral therapy or ART) has transformed HIV from a fatal disease into a manageable chronic condition. Daily ART helps people with HIV live longer, healthier lives and reduces the risk of HIV transmission.

June 5 is a day set aside each year to honor long-term survivors of HIV and to raise awareness of their needs, issues, and journeys. To learn more, browse the AIDSinfo HIV Long-Term Survivors Day webpage.
