HIV.gov to Share Highlights from CDC’s National HIV Prevention Conference This Week
HIV.gov will be at the CDC’s National HIV Prevention Conference this week (March 18-21, 2019) in Atlanta and we’ll be sharing some conference highlights with you here on the blog. The conference will gather more than 3,000 HIV stakeholders to share and discuss refining, improving, and strengthening the nation’s response to HIV so that we can end the HIV epidemic.
The conference theme is “Getting to No New HIV Infections,” which highlights dynamic approaches to HIV prevention, detection, and management, and the critical roles that different communities have in achieving this vision. Participants will include representatives of state, local, and tribal health departments, community-based organizations, federal agencies, as well as researchers, clinicians, people with HIV, and others sharing the latest advancements, strategies, and accomplishments in HIV prevention.
HIV.gov will share blog posts Tuesday through Friday featuring highlights from each of the four daily conference plenary sessions. The topics of these sessions include: Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America, PrEP, the infectious disease consequences of the opioid crisis, and HIV-related stigma.
