Many know about AIDS Awareness Day celebrated on the first of December each year, but few are aware of what today is.
For 16 years, Feb. 7 has been recognized as the official day for black AIDS awareness, testing, education, treatment and involvement.
When it comes to stemming the tides of HIV/AIDS in Black communities throughout the United States and Diaspora, nobody is on the way to save our people. We are the ones who are responsible for saving one another.
National Black HIV/AIDS Day was created by Healthy Black Communities, Inc., and international nonprofit organization with a mission to protect and promote healthy Black communities.
