The third annual National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day (NHAAAD) will be commemorated Saturday, September 18, according to a statement from The AIDS Institute. Sponsored by The AIDS Institute and other national partners, NHAAAD focuses attention on the needs of people ages 50 and older living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS, from prevention and testing to treatment and care. "Aging is a part of life; HIV doesn't have to be" is this year's NHAAAD theme.
