The 2013 United States Conference on AIDS (USCA), will take place September 8-11, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency, in New Orleans, LA. For nearly two decades, USCA has sought “to increase the strength and diversity of the community-based response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic through education, training, new partnerships, collaboration and networking. This year, USCA will continue to high-light the changes in our movement that have brought us closer than ever to ending the epidemic, while focusing on the challenges that we must overcome to achieve this vision. Our target population will be region-specific this year, focusing on the South.
USCA is the largest AIDS-related gathering in the U.S., bringing together over thousands of workers from all fronts of the HIV/AIDS epidemic - from case managers and physicians, to public health workers and advocates, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) and policy-makers - to build national support networks, exchange the latest information and learn cutting-edge tools to address the challenges of HIV/AIDS. We hope you will be one of them.
The single most effective way to reach and impact people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS, and those that serve them, is to sponsor, advertise and exhibit at USCA. Each AIDS-related organization attending the conference - through the diverse fields of prevention, care, treatment, public health, social services and faith-based services - helps thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States make life-sustaining choices every day.
Organizations and companies that provide services to help people deliver education, research, treatment and/or care to people living with HIV or AIDS and/or improve the lives and effectiveness of those working in AIDS service organizations should consider exhibiting at USCA.
The National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), a 501(c)3 organization, develops leadership in communities of color to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since 1987, NMAC has advanced this mission through a variety of programs and services, including: a public policy education program, national and regional training conferences, a treatment and research program, numerous electronic and materials and a website: http://www.nmac.org/.
NMAC also serves as an association of AIDS service organizations providing valuable information to communitybased organizations, hospitals, clinics and other groups assisting individuals and families affected by the AIDS epidemic.
