National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

February 7, 2016


National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day serves to raise awareness of the disproportionate burden of HIV/AIDS among African Americans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), compared with other racial and ethnic groups, African Americans account for a higher proportion of new HIV infections, those living with HIV, and those ever diagnosed with AIDS. CDC reports that gay and bisexual men account for most new HIV infections among African Americans, with young gay and bisexual men 13 to 24 years old as the most affected of this group. 

On National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, individuals and organizations are encouraged to help promote HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment to fight HIV/AIDS in African-American communities.
