National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day

Permanent Link | Posted by Front Desk on November 14, 2012 3:35 PM


NYHAADribbon.jpg Join us in calling on President Obama to recognize the National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day!

The road to an AIDS-free generation begins by prioritizing youth. Today's young people are the first generation that has never known a world without HIV and AIDS. In the United States, almost 40% of new HIV infections are young people ages 13 to 29. Despite this harsh reality, young people and their allies are determined to end this pandemic once and for all.

National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day is a nationwide call to action for our communities, schools and government to invest in young people's health, education, and leadership in the fight against HIV & AIDS.

To achieve this day, we need you. Sign the petition - as either an individual or an organization - that calls on President Obama, Congress, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the HIV & AIDS community to annually recognize April 10 as National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day. Take action now for a National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day and click here!

For young people between the ages of 13 and 24 who are passionate about HIV & AIDS work, apply today to become a National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day Ambassador. Help us make sure the day truly represents young people like you! Applications are due November 30. For more information, click here.

With your support, we can achieve the dream of an AIDS-free generation.
