National Native American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


This day honoring American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians is observed each year at the start of spring and is intended to empower these groups to get tested and bring HIV/AIDS awareness to their communities. The CDC reports that new HIV diagnoses among American Indians and Alaska Natives are proportional to their population sizes and that new HIV diagnoses among Native Hawaiians have declined. However, there is still much work to be done to lower HIV rates even further in these communities.
