About the National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day Ambassadors

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, March 10, 2015


Ambassadors are well-known individuals in entertainment, sports, business, the HIV/AIDS community, and other industries who voluntarily help the Office on Women's Health (OWH) shed light on HIV/AIDS and its impact on women and girls. Ambassadors engage in promotional activities, such as social media outreach and interviews for National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

Please note: The Office on Women's Health does not endorse or promote Ambassadors who participate in activities in connection with National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day or the products or services of the individuals or promoted by the individuals. In addition, an Ambassador's support of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day does not represent affiliation with the Office or HHS.
