Toward Zero: Bridging the Gaps in HIV Treatment and Community Interventions

Pittsburgh, PA US
December 2, 2019

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. 

Target Audience

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.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand and address the needs of transitional youth.
  2. Understanding the importance of adopting patient-centered inclusive healthcare.
