Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day is held annually on 5 June 2023. The day is an opportunity to celebrate and honour those diagnosed with HIV before 1996 when modern, lifesaving treatment was finally rolled out.
Since the early days of the epidemic, those living with HIV long-term have helped pioneer enormous change across HIV research, medial advancement, community engagement and policy development. We are thankful for the contributions they have made towards making the HIV sector what it is today. HIV Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day is an opportunity for us to learn about their needs, issues, and journeys.
NAPWHA put a call out, asking long-term survivors to share a message with our community. We thank all those who participated in this campaign and encourage you to share their message.
