Description

National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) was established in 2003 in response to the devastating impact HIV/AIDS has on Hispanic/Latino communities in the United States. The campaign seeks to draw attention to the role of HIV testing and prevention education in the effort to stem the spread of HIV/AIDS among Hispanics/Latinos. October is also Hispanic heritage month, and organizations around the country promote and sponsor activities that respond to the state of HIV/AIDS among Hispanics/Latinos in their specific communities.
