USCA 2012
The annual U.S. Conference on AIDS Exit Disclaimer (USCA) began this weekend. You can follow us on Twitter (#usca2012). Beginning Monday, we’ll share brief daily highlights from the conference focusing particularly on issues related to the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS).

Organized by the National Minority AIDS CouncilExit Disclaimer (NMAC), the conference brings together more than 2,000 participants from all fronts of the HIV/AIDS epidemic—from case managers and physicians, to public health workers and advocates, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) to policymakers—and seeks “to increase the strength and diversity of the community-based response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic through education, training, new partnerships, collaboration and networking.” According to NMAC, this year’s USCA theme, “Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic”, will spotlight the changes and advances in the HIV/AIDS arena that have brought us closer than ever to ending the epidemic as well as ways that we can move forward as a community to make this dream a reality.
