nwghaaNational Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an annual, nationwide observance that sheds light on the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and girls. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH) leads National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Every year on March 10, and throughout the month of March, federal, national, and community organizations come together to show support for women and girls impacted by HIV and AIDS. This year marks the 11th observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

In recognition of this national observance, you can learn more about HIV and what every woman should know about HIV and AIDS. You can also download the fact sheet from the Office of Women’s Health.

Another great way to participate and raise awareness is to spread the word on social media. You can share messages and images on Facebook from the Office of Women’s Health and you can share the Tweets below simply by clicking on the Tweet This link.
