FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY RECOGNIZES NATIONAL WEEK OF PRAYER FOR THE CURE OF HIV/AIDS

March 2, 2022 – The National Week of Prayer for the Cure of AIDS (NWPHA) is an annual HIV awareness campaign that mobilizes faith communities and highlights the contributions and impact that congregations make in the areas of HIV prevention, screening, direct services, advocacy and community engagement. The NWPHA is an initiative of the Balm in Gilead.

From Sunday March 6 to Saturday March 12, 2022; places of worship such as churches, synagogues, mosques; as well as other faith-based organizations are asked to stop for a moment of prayer for the healing of HIV/AIDS during their service where they will provide information about AIDS to their communities. This national campaign continues to call men and women of faith to prayer and to take aggressive action to dismantle the stigma associated with AIDS; model unconditional love and compassion for all people living with and affected by HIV; disseminate evidence-based HIV education and engage communities in HIV testing and treatment services.
