Join AAHP for National HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on February 7

Ready to get real about HIV/AIDS in our community? Join AAHP on Tuesday, February 7 for a special event in observance of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This unique event will take place at the Sandy Spring Museum from 5:30-7:30 and will feature open discussions with experts, healthcare workers, and people whose lives have been impacted by HIV/AIDS. Health screenings, HIV testing, and sexual health resources and information will be available. Entertainment and light refreshments will be served.

Blacks/African Americans are impacted by HIV/AIDS more than any other race or ethnic group. Recent reports show that Blacks/African Americans accounted for 62% of HIV diagnoses in Montgomery County, while accounting for only 17% of the population. This cannot stand! If you’re serious about building an HIV-free future and want to learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from HIV, this event is for you. No matter your relationship status, sexual health status, or sexual orientation, if you are sexually active, you must be vigilant about your sexual health. 

National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was created to remind us of the disproportionate impact of HIV and AIDS on African Americans, so let's use this opportunity to educate ourselves, get tested, seek treatment if necessary, and work together to reduce stigma and eliminate new infections. On February 7, join us in uniting against HIV/AIDS and making a difference for our communities!
