National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – February 7

Progress and Resilience:

Black communities have made great progress in reducing HIV. Yet, issues such as 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. To continue to reduce the burden of HIV and other health risks, people need adequate housing and transportation, employment, access to culturally competent health services that are free of stigma and discrimination, and more.

Together, when we work to overcome structural barriers to HIV testingprevention, and treatment, and stop HIV stigma, we help reduce HIV-related disparities and health inequities in Black communities.
