Texas: HIV Prevention Leadership Summit to Be Held in Dallas

May 30, 2006

Sponsored by the National Minority AIDS Council and CDC, the 2006 HIV Prevention Leadership Summit opens June 4 in Dallas. The summit, comprising three days of workshops and presentations, is geared toward health professionals, AIDS policy makers, and especially CDC grantees, said Efren Garcia, who co-chairs the host committee.

"But locally," Garcia said, "we've been pushing it among people who have HIV, especially people in minority communities, so they have the chance to get an idea of what is going on in terms of treatment and policies and how the different agencies and organizations work."

The conference program will focus on the following subject areas: knowledge of serostatus; HIV prevention, care, and treatment linkages; targeted, sustained, and effective interventions; and strengthening capacity and infrastructures of organizations, communities, evaluation efforts, epidemiology, and surveillance systems. Topics will include targeting specific communities, HIV rapid testing, the effect of crystal meth use on the epidemic, and prevention strategies.
