National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) is October 15th. NLAAD was created in 2003 in response to the growing number of Hispanics/Latinos being infected with HIV and dying from AIDS related illnesses. This year’s theme; Save a Life, It May Be Your Own. Get Tested., encourages Hispanics/Latinos to educate themselves about HIV/AIDS and the role testing plays in prevention. NLAAD doesn’t stop on October 15th, it’s a year-round work in progress grounded in the collaboration of partners including AIDS Service Organizations and Community Based Organizations; focused on raising awareness and getting people tested.
