April 10 National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD) is observed annually on April 10. NYHAAD increases awareness, generates conversations, and spotlights the work being done to reduce HIV among young people.

Get Involved

You can raise awareness of HIV among young people and provide information on stigma, prevention, testing, and care using CDC’s Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign resources.

Let’s Stop HIV Together aims to empower communities, collaborators, and healthcare providers to reduce HIV stigma and promote prevention, testing, and treatment among all people in the United States. With campaign resources, you can play a role in preventing HIV and helping people with HIV stay healthy. The Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign is part of the national Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative.
