In light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau is making arrangements to host the 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment virtually. This conference is currently scheduled for August 11-14, 2020 in Washington, DC.
Your health, well-being, and safety are the top priority for the HIV/AIDS Bureau. While there is not yet sufficient data on whether people with HIV are more susceptible or more likely to develop severe disease, we must take every precaution to reduce any potential risk to the vulnerable population the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program serves.
The HIV/AIDS Bureau knows many of the registered attendees and speakers are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response around the world. This virtual format will allow those on the front line to still have an opportunity to attend the conference and not take them away from the communities they are working hard to serve.
If the conference is hosted virtually, all Marriott Marquis Washington, DC hotel reservations will be cancelled on behalf of registered attendees. Recipients and stakeholders will not need to request a hotel reservation cancellation.
Please stay tuned for more information. Visit the conference website for information.
