NASTAD is proud to observe National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD). Established in 2003, NLAAD is dedicated to drawing attention to the impact of HIV/AIDS on the growing Latino communities across the United States, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The 2013 theme is “Commit to Speak”/“Comprométete a Hablar”. Every October 15th, partners across the United States raise their collective voice to promote HIV/AIDS education, prevention, testing, treatment, and overall awareness for Latino communities.
