Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a day to address the impact of HIV on black communities.
Black communities have made great progress in reducing HIV. Yet racism, discrimination, and mistrust in the health care system may affect whether Black people seek or receive HIV prevention services. These issues may also reduce the likelihood of engaging in HIV treatment and care. NBHAAD is an opportunity to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among Black communities.
Together we can overcome structural barriers to HIV testing, prevention and treatment among communities of color.
