The mission of NBHAAD is to build the capacity and increase awareness, participation and support for HIV prevention, care and treatment among African Americans.
The primary goal of NBHAAD is to motivate African Americans to get tested and know their HIV status; get educated about the transmission modes of HIV/AIDS; get involved in their local community; and get treated if they are currently living with HIV or are newly diagnosed.
NBHAAD is directed, planned and organized by the Strategic Leadership Council, which partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to mobilize communities and address specific issues regarding local epidemics and best practices that are science based and will influence the course of HIV in Black communities across the country.
