National Asian and Pacific Islander (API) HIV/AIDS Awareness Day


May 19, 2011



logoMay 19, 2011, is the seventh annual observance of National Asian and Pacific Islander (API) HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The purpose of this day is to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

According to the 2009 HIV Surveillance Report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the 40 states with confidential name-based HIV reporting, from 2006 to 2009 the rate of new HIV diagnoses increased among Asians and decreased among Pacific Islanders.

Each year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of AIDS Research (OAR) develops a Trans-NIH Plan for HIV-Related Research. The section of the FY 2011 Plan titled “Reducing HIV-Related Disparities” includes a section on research related to racial and ethnic populations.

The links on this page provide information about National API HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and resources on HIV prevention, treatment, and research, including information specifically related to Asians and Pacific Islanders.
