21st Annual U.S. Conference on AIDS To Be Held in D.C. in One Month

The 21st annual U.S. Conference on AIDS (USAC), organized by NMAC, will open in DC on Sept. 7, one month from today, with the theme "Our Family Reunion." The conference brings together community leaders and HIV advocates to learn the latest information and build skills to provide effective HIV prevention and treatment services. The conference will run Sept. 7-10.

"This year's USCA once again brings together many members of the HIV family at a time of great uncertainty and unease," said NMAC Executive Director Paul Kawata. "At a moment when we have pathways to end the HIV epidemic once and for all, that opportunity could be snatched away because of detrimental proposed federal budget cuts for HIV prevention and treatment. If those cuts become reality, we could actually see a resurgence of HIV in the United States. The information and activities planned for USCA will help all of us work to oppose those cuts and continue our progress toward an HIV-free world."

Registration for USAC closes Aug. 11. To register, visit https://ww2.eventrebels.com/er/Registration/StepRegInfo.jsp?ActivityID=19724&StepNumber=1
