Sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and 40 other public and private agencies, the 2011 National HIV Prevention Conference was held August 14 to 17 in Atlanta. According to a CDC statement, more than 3,000 public health workers and community leaders attended. The major emphasis this year was on how to use new research and strategies to advance the HIV prevention goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy using a high-impact prevention approach. This approach focuses on programs that have demonstrated the greatest potential in high-risk groups and implementing them on a scale large enough to yield the greatest possible impact.
