National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a day to "Share Knowledge. Take Action." The nationwide observance held each March 10 sheds light on the disease's often overlooked impact on women and girls and empowers people to make a difference.Every year on this important day, thousands of people, advocacy organizations, and local and state public health officials share the facts about HIV/AIDS and how it affects women and girls. They also take action in a variety of ways, such as:
Telling women and girls how to prevent HIV/AIDS
Getting more of them to get tested
Providing services to those living with the disease
Doing whatever it takes to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS
You can help, too! Together, we can educate others, change behaviors, and help shape the future for women and girls.
