National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

March 10, 2006 marks the first annual National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This day is set to raise awareness on the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS transmission on women and girls. In support of this event, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is hosting a National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day website that offers materials, including posters, flyers, and a fact sheet on women and girls and HIV, to assist in efforts to educate, motivate, and mobilize local communities in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The website also includes a list of events taking place across the country. Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is sponsored by the DHHS's Office on Women's Health.
