This Friday is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) is an HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative for Black people in the United States and across the Diaspora. There are four specific focal points: Get Educated, Get Tested, Get Involved, and Get Treated!

Support these focal points this Friday at the Union Methodist Church in the South End by getting free sexual health counseling, a confidential rapid HIV test, or get involved by volunteering/spreading the word about NBHAAD. A $10 gift cards available to those who get tested.

PLEDGE to support NBHAAD by doing one of the following:

1. Schedule a sexual health counseling session and/or get a confidential rapid HIV-test. Drop-In anytime on Friday or call 617-487-4242 to set an appointment.

2. Volunteer at Friday’s testing event (anytime between 10-5 pm) or  volunteer next Saturday, Feb. 15th, as we host another testing event at the Mattapan Library. We need support setting up and passing out information in the community in Mattapan.

3. Help raise awareness by inviting your friends to take the pledge or share information on Friday’s event through social media.
