29 May National Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Join us in bringing awareness to HIV/AIDS testing in Caribbean-American communities on June 8, 2017 for National Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Held during Caribbean Heritage Month, this day is dedicated empowering Caribbean American communities in preventative health and beyond.
According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Caribbean region has the highest instances of HIV and AIDS infections outside of the Sub-Saharan Africa. And these statistics reach beyond the region to millions of Caribbean-Americans living in the United States. The National Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was established to share information, resources, HIV education, and opportunities to the Caribbean-American community.
On June 8, 2017, cities across the United States in partnership with the CDC will lead diverse initiatives and activities to bring awareness to HIV/AIDS along with information on testing and other details regarding health status within specific Caribbean-American communities.
