The 21st annual U.S. Conference on AIDS (USCA), which is scheduled to take place Sept. 7-10 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington, D.C., is expected to bring together community leaders, HIV advocates, and researchers to discuss the latest developments related to HIV prevention and treatment, according to the National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), which organizes the conference. 

“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,” Kawata said.

If those cuts become reality, we could actually see a resurgence of HIV in the United States, he said. “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.”
