Bringing Attention to HIV/AIDS in Women and Girls

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an annual nationwide observance that sheds light on the impact that HIV/AIDS has on women and girls. Every year on March 10, federal, national, and community organizations come together to increase awareness, offer support and share information about the importance of HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment.

Partners and supporters host events, engage in online campaigns, and spread the word to family and friends. Ambassadors — community advocates and women living with HIV/AIDS — also use their voices to educate other women and girls about preventing and living with HIV/AIDS.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was first observed on March 10, 2006, and has been observed each year since. During its tenth observance, the awareness day will highlight first hand stories and experiences as told by women and girls of all ages living with the disease — as well as health care providers, caregivers, and advocates.

The awareness day is coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women's Health (OWH). OWH provides national leadership and coordination to improve the health of women and girls through policy, education, and model programs.
