Press Release
The AIDS Institute Announces Event Registration Link and the Release of Poster Series for National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day

August 3, 2011

Washington, DC -- The AIDS Institute is pleased to announce that the event registration link is active for the 4th annual National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (NHAAAD) scheduled for September 18, 2011. The theme for NHAAAD is "Aging is a part of life; HIV doesn't have to be."

NHAAAD focuses on the challenging issues facing the aging population including HIV prevention, care and treatment. The campaign primarily targets 1) People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) who are aging with the disease or already over 50 at the time of their initial diagnosis, 2) Increasing use of protection from HIV infection, especially among the baby boomer population, and 3) Increasing number of grandparents becoming the primary guardians for children who have lost their parent(s) to HIV/AIDS.


The AIDS Institute (TAI) invites organizations and community members who plan, implement and participate in awareness activities or events on or around September18, 2011, register their events at 2011 NHAAAD Event Registration.

"We are very excited to launch the registration link for NHAAAD. We strongly encourage those planning events to register them, not only on a local, regional but national level to truly gain support for these events through TAI's ongoing marketing efforts", states Michelle Scavnicky, Director of Education at The AIDS Institute.

In addition, the NHAAAD poster series was recently developed by The AIDS Institute along with its partners to assist individuals or organizations in their outreach, media and marketing efforts. The goal of the poster series is to emphasize the 30 year anniversary of HIV, highlight relevant data regarding the HIV/AIDS and aging population, and use diverse images in the overall messaging resulting in a broader reach among the target population.
