Souther HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
Today is Southern HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
 You can also read this message in your web browser.
There is an HIV/AIDS crisis in the South. More than half of all new HIV diagnoses are in Southern states. Although modern medications should rule out even a single death from AIDS, more than 2,500 Southerners died from AIDS-related causes in 2017.
Today, on Southern HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (SHAAD) we rewrite our narrative! SHAAD gives us all an opportunity to join a national movement to raise awareness, erase HIV/AIDS related stigma and discrimination, and to advocate for new and necessary resources and solutions to stem the tide of HIV/AIDS in the South.

Commemorate, Celebrate, Advocate
August 31 is Overdose Awareness Day
In collaboration with Seek Healing, WNCAP invites the entire community to join us for Overdose Awareness Day on Sunday, August 30. Although we cannot gather in person this year, we will continue to honor this day by providing an online space, from 4pm-6pm, to congregate and show support.
If you have lost someone to overdose and would like their name read at this event, please submit their name here and we will make sure your loved one is honored at the event.
For more information, please contact Thomas at tcospito@wncap.org or call (828) 252-7489.
