National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day 2010

10 03 2010

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) is a national initiative observed on March 10 each year to raise awareness of the growing impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.

It’s an opportunity for organizations in the U.S. to come together and provide support, encourage discussion and educate women and girls about prevention, the importance of getting tested and how to lead a normal, healthy life if she is infected.

Why is this day needed? Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the U.S.; more and more women have become infected with HIV since it was first reported in the early 1980s; and currently, one in four Americans living with HIV are women.

For information, check out this post and the NWGHAAD website:

I hope everyone took time today to get educated on HIV/AIDS so many people are misinformed or just don’t know.
