Every year in March we observe National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWAGHAAD) to raise awareness about the need for all women to be tested and treated for HIV. This year, the Coastal Health District HIV Prevention Program and Adolescent Health and Youth Development Program have partnered to host “I Am Queen,” a fun, informative event designed to provide women of all ages a relaxed atmosphere in which to discuss sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and HIV.
The event will take place from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, at Victory North located at 2603 Whitaker Street in Savannah.
I Am Queen will include education, food, music, and giveaways. Free, confidential HIV testing will also be available. I Am Queen is focused on empowering women to take control of their sexual health while reducing the stigma around HIV.
