2017 National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day

Today, April 10, 2017, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Incorporated, celebrates National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD). NYHAAD was established in 2013 and was the first annual observance day set aside to recognize the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on young people.

A key approach to reach zero regarding the HIV/AIDS epidemic is through prevention and early intervention. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1 in 5 new HIV diagnoses in the United States were in young people aged 13-24 years old.

Please join us in raising awareness for HIV/AIDS education and testing among our young people. Check out resources on the CDC’s NYHAAD website, there are tools for parents, teachers, and community partners.
