Posted April 8, 2024
National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day

On April 10th, we recognize National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day (NYHAAD), a crucial moment to raise awareness about the impact of HIV and AIDS on young people. Join us in commemorating this day and empowering youth voices!

Advocates for Youth NYHAAD list of demands:

  • Increasing empathy and reducing stigma about HIV and its impact on young people on campus and in communities
  • Affirming policies around HIV care, treatment, and prevention on campus and in communities
  • Decriminalizing HIV by modernizing outdated, out-of-touch HIV laws that criminalize people for their health status
  • Accessing HIV services, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), on-campus and in communities without parental consent;  
  • Updating sex education curricula, which includes medically accurate information about HIV.
