National Latino AIDS Awareness Day
October 15 is National Latino AIDS Awareness Day. The 2015 theme is 'You & I Will Defeat AIDS' - 'Tu y Yo Vamos a Derrotar al SIDA'.
The Latino Commission on AIDS (LCOA) , the Hispanic Federation 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.
