National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day - September 27

National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day - September 27

National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD) is observed each year on September 27 to direct attention to the continuing and disproportionate impact of HIV on gay and bisexual men in the United States.

Get Involved

Partners and organizations can use the Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign resources to highlight ways to reduce HIV stigma and promote testing and treatment for gay and bisexual men.

The Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign includes resources and partnerships aimed at stopping HIV stigma and promoting HIV testing, prevention, and treatment. This campaign is part of the national Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) Initiative. Let’s Stop HIV Together empowers communities, partners on the ground, and healthcare providers to reduce stigma among all Americans, prevent HIV among the hardest-hit populations, and help people with HIV stay healthy.
