May 19th is National Asian & Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This observance, led by the San Francisco Community Health Center, raises awareness of the impact of HIV and AIDS, risk, and stigma surrounding HIV in the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community. Given the rise in violence against the API community, we also stand in solidarity with the community and encourage you to get involved in anti-violence efforts in your local area.
National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NAPIHAAD) is observed annually on May 19. This observance was first observed in 2005 and falls within Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Founded by the Banyan Tree Projectexternal icon, NAPIHAAD educates the public about the impact of HIV stigma among Asian and Pacific Islander people.
