National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD) is an annual, nationwide observance that sheds light on the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.

Every year on March 10, and throughout the month of March, you are invited to join us as we offer support and hope and raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and its effect on women and girls.

We invite women and girls living with HIV/AIDS, those who have been touched by HIV/AIDS, and health care providers to share your experience with HIV/AIDS and your views on the importance of care and treatment. Email your personal story or video (no longer than three minutes) to womenshealth@hhs.gov. We welcome stories in English and Spanish. Use the subject link: NWGHAAD Voices. If you choose to send a video, just provide a link to your YouTube video. If needed, OWH will contact you for additional information.

You can remain anonymous or submit a copy using a different name. Stories may be shared on Womenshealth.gov, OWH social media channels, and in other NWGHAAD materials. We hope these stories will reach and encourage thousands of women and girls who are affected by HIV/AIDS.

We may not include stories from everyone who submits a video.

We invite you to stay updated on NWGHAAD by signing up for our email updates.

Invitamos a las mujeres y niñas, así como a los proveedores de salud, que viven o están afectados por el VIH/SIDA a hablar de sus experiencias sobre la importancia de la atención médica y el tratamiento.
