Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – Coffee/Roundtable Discussion
National 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 12th observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
OWH wants to “empower women and girls to make the best choices when it comes to sex. Abstinence is the surest way to avoid HIV, but if you decide to have sex, there are simple, effective steps to protect yourself and others from HIV.”
