On September 27th, AIDSVu recognizes National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NGMHAAD). Gay and Bisexual Men make up the majority of the new HIV diagnoses among men, and over half (57%) of all people living with HIV. NGMHAAD gives everyone the opportunity to recognize gay men living with HIV and the unique challenges they face.
Use our sample social media and informative infographics with #NGMHAAD and #AIDSVu to recognize this awareness day with us.
