Sunday is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, February 7th of every year, is a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative.

Among all race/ethnic groups, HIV prevalence is highest among the Black community, who account for 46% of the population living with HIV despite comprising just 12% of the population.
