University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

2356 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA, 94115

Come together with the UCSF Black Womxn's Health & Livelihood Initiative and Healing & Uniting Every Sista (HUES) as we explore the effects of HIV within Black communities. This event will include a session that provides insight into the impact of HIV on Black individuals and highlights how HUES and Black Brothers Esteem develop programs to cater to the needs of those living with or affected by HIV. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion featuring community members and UCSF faculty, delving into how their involvement influences and transforms programming. Lunch is provided for folks who join us in-person.

Black communities have made great progress in reducing HIV. Yet racism, discrimination, and mistrust in the health care system may affect whether Black people seek or receive HIV prevention services. These issues may also reduce the likelihood of engaging in HIV treatment and care. The National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is an opportunity to increase HIV education, testing, community involvement, and treatment among Black communities.

First observed on February 7, 1999, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day aims to acknowledge how HIV disproportionately affects Black communities.

There is limited capacity for in-person attendance. Please only register for in-person if you know for sure you can be present. Zoom details have been added for those who would like to commune with us virtually.

The aim of this event is to actively involve community members in discussions concerning HIV within Black Communities. It seeks to offer foundational insights into the current landscape of community engagement for Black folks with underscored reasons for HIV education, prevention, and treatment. This initiative seeks to provide community members with the chance to enhance their understanding of their proximity to their own HIV risk and what support exists in the community for people who’d like to explore community engagement.

UCSF Black Women's Health & Livelihood Initiative envisions a world where Black women are valued and nurtured in the same way that Black women care for others. We prioritize and amplify the voice and power of Black women, at UCSF and beyond, to achieve their optimal health and well-being.

San Francisco AIDS Foundation promotes health, wellness, and social justice for communities most impacted by HIV, through sexual health and substance use services, advocacy, and community partnerships.
