June 5 is National HIV/AIDS Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day coast to coast.
June 4, 2014 - Let's Kick ASS-AIDS Survivor Syndrome is the lead
sponsor and organizer of the first National HIV/AIDS Long-Term Survivors Awareness Day
(NHALTSAD) on June 5, 2014 highlighting the unique experiences and issues of long-term survivors living in America and around the globe.
This year's theme is "We're Still Here", reflecting the strength and resilience of a generation who lived through the darkest days
of the epidemic and whom who are now aging with HIV. The We're Still Here Campaign begins on June 5. It kicks off a year of Optimizing the
Lives of Survivors through self-empowerment, increased visibility, wellness, ending stigma and putting survivors on the agenda.
NHALTSAD occurs on the anniversary first-ever published report of what came to be known as AIDS. On June 5, 1981 in 1981 the CDC's
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) reported the five young gay men had been diagnosed with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia
(PCP) indicating signs of compromised systems. That brief account sent shockwaves through the LGBT community.
