As the 2016 U.S. Conference on AIDS (USCA) continued on September 17 in Hollywood, Florida, AIDS.gov shared more conference highlights via three Facebook Live events.
Two members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA), Scott Shoettes and Gabriel Maldonado, spoke with PACHA’s Executive Director Kaye Hayes about the community discussion PACHA held at the conference. Scott is the HIV Project Director and Senior Attorney at Lambda Legal, and Gabriel is CEO of TruEvolution, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting for LGBT justice and advocating for the prevention and elimination of HIV/AIDS in America. During their Facebook Live event, they also discussed HIV-related stigma, an issue much in discussion at the conference and one that both Scott and Gabriel have been exploring as co-chairs of PACHA’s HIV disparities subcommittee.
