HIV/AIDS Awareness Days

A number of national and global awareness days are held annually to help us understand and fight the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The Department of Health and Human Services is using all of its resources to combat the disease, and one way it is doing so is by supporting these awareness days, which help raise awareness and spread information about HIV/AIDS.

It is important to know the facts, how to prevent being infected, and how to live with the disease. We need to continue to talk and learn about HIV/AIDS, and the awareness days listed here provide an excellent opportunity for discussion and information sharing. Our goal is to provide timely information and resources for these awareness days.

We encourage you to visit the HIV/AIDS Awareness Days website ( throughout the year and to download materials, educational tools, and information on the Department's support of all HIV/AIDS Awareness Days. We hope the resources and information will assist your efforts to educate, motivate, and mobilize your local community in the fight against HIV/AIDS!
