PLEASE NOTE: While HIV/AIDS information and prevention knowledge is important for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, statistics have always shown that Black people – and other people of color, tend to rate among the highest in world society who are infected with HIV, who don’t normally get tested and who go untreated.

This annual campaign is designed and promoted to encourage sexually active men and women of color to learn more – as in the FACTS about the virus, to get tested for HIV regularly, to learn and to know one’s personal health status where HIV – or any STD/STI virus for that matter, is concerned, to practice safe sex and to insist that one’s sexual partner do the same.

One thought on “National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness DAY 2015

  1. Rob, my friend and brother, thank you for posting this very important reminder! Sadly, in this day and age, the information is still necessary! You are absolutely correct in highlighting the reality that although the date and focus of this observance is directed towards the African-American community, we are ALL impacted by the HIV pandemic. It’s not who we are, but rather what we do that puts us all at risk for HIV infection. Thanks for keeping us all real, buddy! Much love and many C2C hugs, man! 🙂
