Beginning tomorrow, HIV.gov will be sharing highlights from the 2017 U.S. Conference on AIDS (USCA) via several Facebook Live updates. We are excited about being able to bring conversations from the conference to our followers who are not able to be there in person. The annual conference is convened by NMAC , formerly the National Minority AIDS Council, and it brings together thousands of community leaders and HIV advocates to learn the latest information and build skills to provide effective HIV prevention and treatment services across the nation.
Our schedule of Facebook Live conversations will address topics being explored across the conference including viral suppression, HIV-related stigma, curing HCV coinfection among people living with HIV, examples of the Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative Fund (SMAIF) in action, and how the latest advances in HIV science are strengthening current work to end the epidemic. We’ll be hearing from federal HIV leaders including, OHAIDP’s Dr. Rich Wolitski, NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci, HHS’s Corinna Dan, CDC’s Dr. Jonathan Mermin, and HRSA’s Dr. Laura Cheever. We’ll also be hearing from many community voices participating in the conference who will share their experiences and ideas.
