Toward Zero: Bridging the Gaps in HIV Treatment and Community Interventions
Advances in the treatment of HIV/AIDS have extended the lives of many. HIV is now considered a chronic disease. There is convincing evidence that if we can diagnose and treat all persons with HIV in the United States, we could dramatically slow the growth of new HIV cases to near zero. The annual World AIDS Day conference provides an overview of timely clinical and psychosocial issues related to the care of persons living with HIV/AIDS. This conference has been developed with the input of physicians and other health professionals, as well as consumers and prior attendees, through conference evaluations.
This conference is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychologists, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, pharmacists, social workers, health educators, peers, and all individuals interested in learning more about HIV/AIDS. This is a knowledge-based activity.
