October 15 is the eighth annual National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD), a day to take action to stop the spread of HIV in Latino communities across the United States.
Founded by the Latino Commission on AIDS, NLAAD focuses on how Latinos can work together to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS in the community. This year’s theme ‘Save A Life; It May Be Your Own’ urges Hispanics/Latinos to get tested for HIV, which is critical to preventing the spread of HIV.
