National HIV Awareness Month

As we commemorate the second anniversary of the  release of the United States’ first-ever National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the return of the International AIDS Conference to the U.S. after 20 years,  July is also National HIV Awareness Month!  This is the opportunity to re-ignite Americans through awareness and action to change the landscape of the HIV epidemic in the U.S.

The goals of the National HIV Awareness Month are: to create a wide scale public awareness of HIV/AIDS, end HIV stigma and discrimination and engage new stakeholders in the fight against HIV/AIDS with the ultimate goal of ending the epidemic. Throughout the years, many Americans have began to view  HIV/AIDS as a global problem with no impact here in the U.S. However, 56,000 Americans are infected with HIV every year. 

National HIV Awareness Month is a call to action for Americans to work towards the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and ultimately an AIDS-free generation.
