The Director of CAI’s HIV CBA Center, Dr. Tony Jimenez, will be a roundtable panelist at the National HIV Prevention Conference in Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, December 8. This conference is the preeminent conference for scientists, public health officials, community workers, clinicians, and persons living with HIV. Individuals come from a wide variety of organizations to share their expertise and ultimately prevent infections, strengthen care, and reduce disparities.
The panel, “Healthcare Capacity-Building Assistance: Unique Opportunities Focusing on Building High-Impact HIV Prevention Capacity Among Healthcare Organizations,” will include colleagues from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Denver Prevention Training Center (Denver PTC) and Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC). This roundtable will emphasize the significant role healthcare organizations serve in the prevention efforts and will help them identify their capacity building needs for HIV prevention, testing and care services.
Approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are living with the HIV infection1 and nearly 50,000 people become infected with HIV every year.2
