Tuesday, February 7, is the 18th annual observance of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). The Strategic Leadership Council, a community-led group that sets the direction for NBHAAD, announced that this year’s theme is “I Am My Brother’s and Sister’s Keeper. Fight HIV/AIDS!” It’s a call to action for all of us. We’ve put together a list of resources from AIDS.gov and our federal partners to help you get involved with #NBHAAD.
Since the first World AIDS Day in 1988, we have seen tremendous changes in our collective response to HIV and AIDS–including changes in the way advocates, leaders, people affected by the virus, and others communicate about HIV. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other digital platforms have made it possible for us to connect in creative ways and to reach diverse audiences with messages about this yearly observance.
