National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness DayArchived
Today's youth have never known a world without HIV/AIDS. National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD) was established to educate individuals about the impact of HIV/AIDS on youth and highlight the work of young people in the U.S. to strengthen the fight against HIV/AIDS. NYHAAD is observed each year on April 10. Directed by Advocates for Youth and its partners, NYHAAD acknowledges the role and needs of youth in the HIV/AIDS epidemic and mobilizes the public to promote HIV prevention, fight stigma, and start conversations about HIV/AIDS.
