National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Celebrating life and encouraging our community to get educated, get tested, get involved in prevention and get treated for HIV and AIDS.

Let’s Stop HIV Together

National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NNHAAD) is held on the first day of Spring. It was initiated in 2007 and has been successful in promoting and educating Native people about HIV and AIDS.

On this day, we encourage all Native communities to plan events to promote HIV testing and continue education of HIV and AIDS. It is also a day to honor those who are infected and affected by the disease, as well as to honor those who have passed as a result of AIDS related complications.

Our Mission

We aim to work together with native communities to encourage people to get educated, get tested and to learn more about HIV/AIDS and its impact in our community.

Resources & Education

Explore fact sheets, awareness day information and additional resources about HIV/AIDS. Through education, we can end the stigma and prevent HIV/AIDS in our community.
