As we commemorate National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on February 7, we are proud to mark the one-year anniversary of the AIDS.gov Black Voices blog. This blog series is part of a continuing effort to shed light on important social media and HIV-related topics for the community, by the community.
In addition to reflecting on HIV/AIDS Awareness Days, the Black Voices bloggers have covered a series of topics that support our long-term efforts of addressing HIV disparities among Black men who have sex with men (MSM). In observance of #NBHAAD, we revisit the conversations of the past year from our seven Black Voices bloggers.

- Managing my HIV = Managing My Health
- Independence from HIV
- Swallow A Pill for HIV Prevention
