National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day to be Observed on Sept. 27
The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) alongside the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria (GBC) has coordinated the second annual ‘National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day’ which will be observed this Sunday, Sept. 27.
NAPWA is working in close collaboration with companies such as MTV, Facebook, Kenneth Cole and various others on a public education campaign that stresses the importance of regular HIV/AIDS testing.
"The commitment of these companies, combined with the work of partners like NAPWA and CDC, will make a critical difference in the fight to defeat HIV/AIDS,” said John Newsome, Vice President, U.S. Impact Initiative for GBC.
