National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Every year on March 10 — and throughout the month of March — local, state, federal, and national organizations come together to shed light on the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls and to show support for those at risk of and living with HIV. This year marks the 19th annual observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD).

This year’s theme, “Prevention and Testing at Every Age. Care and Treatment at Every Stage.” reemphasizes the need to further prevention efforts. It also reinforces three goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which concentrates on the prevention of new HIV infections, improving HIV-related health outcomes of people living with HIV, and reducing HIV-related disparities. By working together, we can help eliminate HIV and improve the quality of treatment and care for people currently living with HIV.

To learn more about NWGHAAD, access the NWGHAAD 2024 fact sheet. You can also visit the Office on Women’s Health HIV and AIDS web page to access resources and information about HIV and AIDS for women and girls.
