National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day
National Youth HIV and AIDS Awareness Day is celebrated on April 10 every year. This day aims at raising awareness, generating conversations, and spotlighting the work being done to reduce HIV and AIDS among young people. This is a very important day to remember because HIV/AIDS among youth is a bigger problem than many believe it to be, according to the most recent HIV statistics. It is therefore critical to promote young voices and peer-to-peer education as powerful weapons in the fight against the AIDS epidemic. This is not just a government obligation, we all have our role to play in creating awareness and saving lives.
