National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
HIV/AIDS continues to play a major role in the lives of gay and bisexual men. This is why the former National Association of People With AIDS established NGMHAAD. According to the CDC, nearly one in seven gay and bi men living with HIV are unaware they have it. The purpose of this national awareness day is to get individuals tested so that those who are positive can get on treatment, remain healthy and reduce the likelihood of transmitting the virus to their partners.
