National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NNHAAD) is observed on the first day of Spring every year. It was initiated in 2007 and has been successful in promoting and educating Native people about HIV and AIDS.
On this day, we encourage all Native communities to plan events to promote HIV testing and continue the education of HIV and AIDS. It is also a day to honor those who are infected and affected by the disease, as well as to honor those who have passed as a result of AIDS-related complications.

Of those people, about 14%, or 1 in 7, did not know they had HIV.
