National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

May 19, 2014


May 19 is National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The purpose of this annual observance is to break the silence about HIV/AIDS in Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was founded by the Banyan Tree Project, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the project is to stop HIV/AIDS-related stigma in Asian and Pacific Islander communities. In the words of the Banyan Tree Project, “… this type of discrimination prevents A&PIs [Asians and Pacific Islanders] from getting tested for HIV and from getting health care and other services they need to stay healthy.” Each year on May 19, organizations and individuals nationwide join with the Banyan Tree Project to raise HIV awareness and testing in Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
