There is an HIV/AIDS crisis in the South.

There is an HIV/AIDS crisis in the South. This reality requires all of us to be engaged in collective, bold and innovative strategies to reduce these disparities.

Southern HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (SHAAD) is the day we rewrite our narrative! SHAAD gives us all an opportunity to join a national movement to raise awareness, erase HIV/AIDS related stigma and discrimination, and to advocate for new and necessary resources and solutions to stem the tide of HIV/AIDS in the South.

Be the southern solution today and sign up to be a supporter of SHAAD! We are the difference we need in the South. Not in the South? That’s not a problem. You, too, are a part of the solution.
