World AIDS Days NYC 

Join Apicha CHC and the city of New York in commemorating and raising awareness for World AIDS Day on December 1st.  We will be joined by powerful activists and organizations to honor the long fight to end AIDS. 

Last year, Governor Cuomo reaffirmed the city's commitment to help end the epidemic by the year of 2020. Apicha CHC has been offering HIV services for since 1989 and we are so proud of the progress this city has made. We are on our way

 


"In 2014, 2,718 New York City residents were newly diagnosed with HIV, a historical low representing a decrease of more than 35 percent from the 4,186 new HIV diagnoses in 2004."

Why Should You Be There?  

The NYC HIV/AIDS community and New York City government unite on December 1 to end this epidemic. The strength of our movement has always relied upon the support we've found in our communities, and we have always been stronger together. 

If you are unable to join the event in person, help raise awareness about the day, the cause, and the city's goal through social media and in-person communications. Remember, there is always a way to participate and offer your support! 

Events Details!

  • Thursday, December 1st
