About Event

June 5th is HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day (HLTSAD).

We join the world in recognising people living with HIV long term. This day is to commemorate and celebrate the lives, courage, and advocacy of those who pioneered the HIV response.  Those who have been living with the pandemic for forty years have paved the way for research, medical advancements, and policy change.  We respect and honour them, knowing the impact on their lives has been significant.
