HAPPY NATIONAL National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day!
Today is the day to get checked, especially after a crazy March Madness/St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The National Native Capacity Building Assistance Network works tirelessly for this to help spread the importance of being checked for HIV viruses and raising awareness of safe sex.
The first National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was held in 2007, help sponsored by communities of American Indians, Alaskan Natives and native Hawaiians to help encourage native people to help learn more about the effects of HIV & AIDS.
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus, which is the virus that causes HIV infection. The abbreviation “HIV” can refer to the virus or to HIV infection.
AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection.
