HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis Advocacy

A national group of advocates, providers, organizations and community members is recognizing the need to join efforts in addressing HIV/AIDS and Hep B among African immigrants. This group is promoting September 9th as National African Immigrant and Refugee HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis Awareness Day (NAIRHHA Day).  In 2016 several organizations joined in a twitter chat to help build awareness of the need for culturally and linguistically appropriate programming and resources.
