National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

February 7, 2018 all-day

Coordinated by the Strategic Leadership Council, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is observed each year on February 7 to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among black communities.

The International Awareness and Involvement Committee encourages you to Get Tested

Testing is at the core of this initiative and is critical for prevention of HIV in Black communities. Mark February 7 of every year as your annual or bi-annual day to get tested for HIV. This is vital for those who are sexually active and those at high risk of contracting HIV.

To find a testing site near you, visit Get Tested, text your ZIP code to KNOWIT (566948), or call 1-800-CDC-INFO. Many testing locations are free and confidential. You can also use a home testing kit, available in drugstores or online.
