Regional HIV/AIDS Connection’s Volunteer Awards highlight how volunteers have enhanced the delivery of our mission in the counties we serve. Volunteer participation is a key element to the success of RHAC. The intention of these awards is to demonstrate our profound appreciation of volunteers’ contributions. The awards celebrate volunteers who embody our value statement: “The courage to do what is right” and embrace our vision of Voice, Knowledge and Hope while exemplifying our guiding principles.
If you know of an outstanding individual or committee that has demonstrated Voice, Knowledge or Hope, consider nominating them for a Regional HIV/AIDS Connection (RHAC) Volunteer Award.
Who is eligible?
Any RHAC volunteer who has recorded volunteer hours between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018. An individual can only receive each of the Voice, Knowledge or Hope awards once. However, an individual can be nominated multiple times.
Who can nominate someone for an award?
Due to the intent of these awards, self-nominations will not be considered. Self-nomination occurs when the volunteer nominates themselves for an award. RHAC employees, board members, clients, volunteers and members of the public and community partner organizations can nominate.

February marks Black History Month and February 7th is African, Caribbean & Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
Stigma and discrimination based on gender, race and sexual orientation are significant barriers to HIV prevention in African, Caribbean & Black (ACB) communities and can negatively impact HIV testing rates and the ability of people living with HIV to seek the treatment, care and support they need. Open discussion about stigma and health issues in ACB communities, helps to inform people about their options. Together communities can encourage testing, treatment and proper care, and address issues such as stigma and the criminalization of HIV non-disclosure.
Check out these events happening in the community to celebrate ACB culture and history:
