This year, February 7, 2015 marks the 15th year for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD). This is a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative targeted at Blacks in the United States and the Diaspora. The Black Aids Institute is the only organization that focuses their attention solely on black people with HIV/AIDS. This year there are some shocking findings and scientific evidence that speak about treatment and opportunities in the black community when it comes to the HIV/AIDs epidemic.National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is a call for Black American to recognize that HIV is indeed a Black phenomenon & the reality that HIV disproportionately affects Black people and especially Black men who have sex with men (MSM) and Black women. Hank Millbourne will discuss information about the number of Black MSM diagnosed with HIV and the myth of black men and how they engage in sex. Hank will also talk about how the community should educate themselves, become more involved, and know what their status is and if you are infected to get treated.
HIV/AIDS is still a major issue in our community. What are we doing about it? Did you know that infection rates are on the rise?
Let's talk about it family.

It has been over 30 years since national attention has been drawn to the mystery illness devastating the masses. Sadly, it continues to reign plaguing nation upon nation. HIV/AIDS does not discriminate! It impacts ALL ages and races. We must NOT forget this. Placing it in the depths of our subconscious will not make it go away. Caressa White, Community Education and Outreach Manager and Noshima Darden-Tabb, MSW, LICSW/ Lead Client-centered Care Coordinator of the University of North Carolina Clinical Trials Unit; Patrick Ingram creator of "The POZ Life of Patrick Ingram" series on You Tube and Dr. Krista Johnson, Howard University Associate Professor in the Department of African Studies share their intricate knowledge of the disease in order to empower others nationally and internationally.

Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS intersect and most people find that surprising. Abusers are usually promiscuous and move around from one relationship to another. Sometimes having multiple relationships.
How does this play into how the STATUS of HIV/AIDS become a part of the conversation?
It is very important to know where you STAND.
Because February 7th, is the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the show of this week will address the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, & Gender–Related Health Disparities.
Data support the need to address not only HIV/AIDS and IPV, but also their intersection:
- Most women living with HIV had experienced IPV
- Among women living with HIV/AIDS, trauma, abuse and violence are associated with less use of antiretroviral medication, decreased medication adherence, and increased risk of death
- HIV infection may trigger or augment physical violence, particularly against women
Claes Lilja drops by the SnowbizNow Studios to share news of Poz Retreats, four-day international gatherings of people who are either infected or affected by HIV/AIDS who seek to enrich their lives through deeper insights, awareness and connections to both the community and oneself. They learn physiological, psychological and spiritual tools to help create healthier and more fulfilling lives while forging bonds and friendships with others who are dealing with HIV from different parts of the world. The program includes informational and instructional sessions as well as exercises and participation by all the attendees with attention given to the full body-mind-spirit connection. There is also plenty of time for social activities and relaxation. A variety of different techniques are used at the retreat including meditation, transformational breath work, healing touch and much, much more.

As an HIV/AIDS prevention advocate, here is an introduction to my nonprofit organization and to why this cause matters a great deal to me. I am an HIV- wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt and good friend to many, who understands that a person doesn't have to be HIV+ to help make a difference.
But until those in my community find thier voices and step up to play thier own individual roles in this fight against new HIV transmissions, particularly amongst our youth, I will be here working diligently with the folks at The Power of T.E.E.N.S., Inc. help bring an end to all human suffering cause by HIV & AIDS.
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is alive and well and if we ignore it now then we will only have to be prepared to deal with it later. According to the CDC, 1 in 5 don't realize that they are a carrier of the virus and it impacts our youth ages 14-24 in large numbers on an annual basis.
If you've never had to count off for any reason, then try it today. It's simple really. Just go to a local shopping center and count as people walk by. One..two..three..four..five. One..two..three..four..five. Your have just theoretically been in the presence of at least two people who are infected with HIV who don't know it! Now that you've had this practice, try counting off the people who are in your life on a daily basis. My question to you is with this knowledge, how can you chose to do nothing? Get tested and have conversations with your children and your family members about the impact of HIV & AIDS on our communities.
