World AIDS Day is held on December 1st each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against ending the HIV/AIDS pandemic. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988. We invite all community members and persons from surrounding areas to our upcoming FREE programs. Information shared will better equip residents with an understanding of HIV/AIDS and how they can best combat this virus at a local level. Please join us in our efforts to support and promote HIV education, prevention, testing, and outreach. Great Lakes Bay Health Centers, the Saginaw National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Great Lakes Bay HIV/AIDS Task Force, and Saginaw’s Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority will commemorate World AIDS Day 2020 with various free community events:
