NMAC Hosting the National HIV PrEP Summit: December 3-4, 2016, San Francisco, Calif.
NMAC is pleased to announce a new conference that will focus on the importance of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and biomedical HIV prevention interventions to curb the spread of HIV.
The first National HIV PrEP Summit (NHPS) will bring together leaders to focus on the implementation and infrastructure needed to turn the promise of the science of PrEP into an effective community-level HIV prevention option for communities of color. This will be accomplished through skills-building sessions and feedback vehicles to make policy recommendations for the new administration. NMAC is partnering with a number of organizations that have been instrumental in the implementation of successful PrEP campaigns in their communities. The NHPS logo is a collage featuring the impactful work of some of the summit partners. Keeping NMAC's mission to lead with race at the forefront of our programs, the NHPS goals are to:
- Increase access to quality PrEP services for people of color.
- Collaboratively build the infrastructure needed to support biomedical HIV prevention.
- Bring together diverse leaders and constituents.
The summit's sessions will include 24 workshops and 4 plenary sessions focusing on both capacity building and policy development. Proposed conference tracks include: Research, Program Implementation, Priority Populations, Public Policy, Healthcare Providers, Education Campaigns and Training Programs. A needs assessment and constituent survey will inform program development. There will be no exhibit hall this year; however, partners' PrEP campaigns will be displayed throughout the conference space.
Scholarship opportunities are available to support PrEP navigators, community based organizations and health departments that are working to establish PrEP programs. Apply for a scholarship.
NMAC thanks Gilead Sciences for their major support of the meeting. However, additional support is needed. For information on sponsorship opportunities visit the NHPS website or contact NMAC's Development Division.
