“¡Latinos Unidos y Saludables!”
In English: “Latinos stand together! Let’s stay healthy! Get tested for HIV”
In Spanish: "¡Latinos unidos y saludables! Hay que hacerse la prueba del VIH"
This year’s theme was selected to underscore the importance of health and wellness in general for Latinos, in addition to HIV/AIDS.
Commemorated annually on October 15 (the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month), NLAAD spotlights the HIV/AIDS epidemic among Latinos.
More than 75,000 people across the country have been tested for HIV as a result of NLAAD events in the past eight years.
