National Latino AIDS Awareness Day

Plan an Event

Facing AIDS note

October 15 is National Latino AIDS Awareness Day. The 2013 theme was “Commit to Speak”/“Comprométete a Hablar”.

The Latino Commission on AIDS (LCOA) Exit Disclaimer, the Hispanic Federation Exit Disclaimer and many other organizations organize this day. The NLAAD campaign works annually at building capacity for non-profit organizations and health departments in order to reach Latino/Hispanic communities, promote HIV testing, and provide HIV prevention information and access to care.
