National Youth HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD) is observed each year on April 10 to educate the public about the impact of HIV on young people and to highlight the work that young people are doing across the country to respond to the epidemic.

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 young people.

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.

Facebook:  Young people are the least likely age group to know their HIV status, be linked to care in a timely manner and have a suppressed viral load. Addressing HIV in youth requires that young people have access to information and tools they need to reduce their risk, make healthy decisions, and get treatment and care if they have HIV. Share information with young people in your lives about HIV and sexual risk behaviors. https://bit.ly/3azksB3 #StopHIVTogether #NYHAAD
