Dear Advocate,

In a few days thousands of community leaders, front-line workers, policy makers, physicians and advocates from throughout the US will convene for the United States Conference on AIDS (USCA). This update includes a short list of biomedical HIV prevention research and implementation-related sessions and links to the Black Treatment Action Network/PxROAR Advocates’ Roadmap and full conference program. (The Black Treatment Action Network is a project of the Black AIDS Institute.)

The conference, sponsored by the National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), will take place September 8-11 in New Orleans. The full conference agenda—including an interactive agenda builder—is available on the conference website.

The BTAN/PxROAR Advocates’ Roadmap highlights workshops, seminars and roundtables on a range of issues such as HIV prevention advocacy, access to treatment, linkage to care and the treatment cascade. Advocates who attend Roadmap sessions at the conference are eligible for prizes. Click here to learn more.
