The annual National Caribbean-American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was created to provide Caribbean-Americans with resources, HIV/AIDS health education, testing opportunities and treatment information including linkage to care.  It’s a day to support your community, have compassion for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, learn your status and start conversations with family and friends about prevention. Your involvement is critical in reducing HIV/AIDS in our community.

Outreach and health information, linkage to care information, and free HIV/STD screening will be provided at these events.
