Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


Every month 1,000 young people acquire HIV. In order to reach an AIDS-free generation, the first National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day will take place on April 10. The event will work to acknowledge young people's great work fighting this epidemic and hold leaders accountable so they prioritize young people in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

What can you do to support NYHAAD? You can table, host a poetry reading, show a movie, bring mobile testing unites to your campus or organization. Be sure to register your event so it can be added to the NYHAAD map and be seen along with the other events young people and their allies are holding all over the country.
