National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 15 of October, repeating indefinitely
October 15 is National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD), which was first observed in 2003 by the Hispanic Federation and the Latino Commission on AIDS. NLAAD is an opportunity to help address the disproportionate impact of HIV on Hispanic/Latinx communities, promote HIV testing, and stop HIV stigma. This observance is also a community mobilization effort that helps promote the effective ways to prevent, treat, and stop the transmission of HIV among Hispanic/Latinx people.
