HIV Prevention and Education Summit
June 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Presented by Philadelphia FIGHT
The HIV Prevention and Education Summit is a conference that welcomes all people interested in learning more about the wide range of issues that impact people living with HIV (PLWH/A) and the AIDS epidemic at large. The conference provides information on the latest treatment, research, prevention, and outreach strategies and aims to bring forward explicitly the social determinants of health that place people at risk. These determinants include stigma, institutional racism, transphobia, homophobia, healthcare access, economic injustice, housing insecurity, and food insecurity to name a few. The Prevention and Education Summit shares evidence-based strategies, and best practices to prevent HIV, link individuals to care, and provide culturally competent services to all individuals. The conference explains vital health information in non-academic language and aims to amplify the voices of PLWHA and ensures that people with lived experiences are able to stand as experts in workshops and discussions.
