2001 National HIV Prevention Conference

August 12-15, 2001
Hyatt Regency Atlanta Hotel
Atlanta, GA

February 2, 2001

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) joins other governmental and non-governmental prevention partners to announce the 2001 National HIV Prevention Conference.


For nearly 20 years, HIV and AIDS have presented historic challenges to our nation's public health, scientific, and medical communities. It is estimated that in the United States, more than 800,000 persons are living with HIV. Despite extremely beneficial advances in HIV/AIDS treatment in recent years, the epidemic is far from over. An estimated 40,000 Americans become infected with HIV every year, and more than half of these are young people under the age of 25. The HIV epidemic is increasingly affecting communities of color -- particularly young people and women. The majority of new infections among men, nearly 60%, continue to be among men who have sex with men (MSM). Recent evidence suggests there has been resurgence in unsafe behaviors among some communities of MSM.

This conference, following the 1999 National HIV Prevention Conference, is unique in its sole concentration on the ever-important science of HIV prevention. The conference highlights prevention interventions and strategies used to prevent the further spread of HIV and AIDS. Prevention remains the best hope for a world without this devastating disease.

Conference Mission

The mission of the 2001 National HIV Prevention Conference is to:
  • Share research findings and effective prevention approaches among governmental, community, and academic partners in HIV prevention; and

  • Strengthen collaborations between program practitioners and researchers in areas including behavioral interventions, vaccine development, monitoring the epidemic, developing rapid and reliable tests for HIV diagnosis, and improving access to early treatment for HIV.
