These HIV Awareness Days. Seemingly so many. HIV.gov lists 13.
Among them is June 5, HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day: once unimaginable, a day established to "celebrate the strength and resiliencies of people living longest with HIV/AIDS," a day selected to sync with the first formal report of AIDS cases in CDC's MMWR, in 1981.
A recent blog, COVID-19 reminds us how AIDS made us resilient, provides a timely reflection on 39 years of an epidemic. In August, HRSA will commemorate the 30 years of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program at its 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment. The meeting will also serve as a platform to share varied aspects of the programs and models of HIV care that have achieved remarkable rates of viral suppression for hundreds of thousands of individuals, making long-term survivorship the norm for people with HIV.
