RAHMA and its partners lead the planning for National Faith HIV & AIDS Awareness Day , The observance is intended to engage faith communities to work together for HIV/AIDS education, prevention, treatment, care and support, and to reduce and eliminate stigma and discrimination. NFHAAD was first observed in 2017.
The AIDS Institute leads this observance day. This day brings attention to the growing number of people living long and full lives with HIV and to their health and social needs.
In 2008 the National Association of People with AIDS launched this observance day to recognize the disproportionate impact of the epidemic on gay men.
