National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is February 7. Get involved in prevention efforts, get tested, and get treatment.

This year’s theme, Together for Love: Stop HIV Stigma, focuses on our shared responsibility for taking actions to help end HIV stigma – negative attitudes or beliefs about people with HIV. Stigma affects the emotional well-being and mental health of people who have HIV and can keep people from getting tested and treated for HIV. Ending HIV stigma is critical to reducing new HIV infections among African Americans and helping African Americans with HIV stay healthy.

On NBHAAD, help us make progress in reducing HIV among African Americans by fighting stigma and by promoting HIV testing, prevention, and treatment.

Get Tested

See your doctor or healthcare provider for HIV testing. HIV testing is offered at all county health departments, through partnerships with other clinics, correctional facilities, college/universities and community-based organizations.

Get tested, get in care, stay in care, be healthy.
