10th Anniversary National Latino AIDS Awareness Day
October 15th is the the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month, and today Hispanic/Latinos will recognize the serious impact of HIV and AIDS in their communities. National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, (NLAAD) was established ten years ago by the Latino Commission on AIDS, the Hispanic Federation and other national organizations as a day dedicated to renew their commitment, reflect on the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on the Latino community, and educate people about the importance of everyone knowing their HIV status through routine testing.
Remember that oral rapid HIV testing kits are now available for purchase from your local pharmacy, so you can test yourself (and loved ones) in the comfort of your own home. Don’t delay – get tested today!
