Arkansas celebrates National Latino AIDS Awareness Day

On Saturday October 11 Arkansas celebrated National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) with a community health fair organized by the Arkansas Human Development Corporation and the Mexican Consulate “Ventanilla de Salud” program.

National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD), held each year on the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month, represents a call to action for Hispanics/Latinos to protect their lives and the lives of those they love by getting tested and learning about HIV.

NLAAD events are organized annually on October 15th in more than 200 cities and 45 states across the country and US territories. NLAAD was established in 2003 to act as a community mobilization catalyst to prevent the spread of HIV infection, promote HIV testing opportunities, connect people to care, and hold activities that raise HIV/AIDS awareness and other health conditions impacting Hispanics/Latinos.
