National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day - October 15

Coordinated by the Latino Commission on AIDSexternal icon, National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) is observed each year on October 15 to increase awareness of the impact of HIV/AIDS on the Hispanic/Latino population in the United States. The NLAAD campaign promotes HIV testing and prevention, and provides information on access to care to Hispanic/Latino communities across the nation. Browse our resources to learn more about NLAAD.

Get Involved

This year’s NLAAD theme, “Living with HIV or Not…We’re in This Together,” aims to address that we all have a role to play in stopping stigma and ending the HIV epidemic. Partners and organizations can use this year’s theme to highlight how people of either HIV status can stop new HIV diagnoses by getting tested for HIV, considering PrEP, becoming undetectable, and using condoms.
