Featured Event

U.S. Conference on AIDS
Thursday, September 10 - Sunday, September 13
Washington, DC

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. In 2014, USCA continued to highlight how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) can help us move even closer toward ending the epidemic, while focusing on the challenges we still have to overcome to achieve this vision, including several with the ACA itself. USCA is the largest AIDS-related gathering in the U.S., bringing together thousands of workers representing all sectors and every all front of the war against this disease—from case managers and physicians,to public health workers and advocates, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs) and policy-makers. They come to build national support networks, exchange the latest information and learn cutting-edge tools to address the challenges of HIV/AIDS.
