AIDS United at 2018 USCA!

Next week, September 6 - 9, the United States Conference on AIDS (USCA) will take place in Orlando, FL. And AIDS United will be there in full force!

We are excited to invite you to join us at what are sure to be two meaningful sessions:

Community Input: A Dialogue on Policy, Grantmaking & Capacity Building Priorities
Thursday, September 6, 8-11AM
Join us on the first day of USCA to provide your feedback on our policy work, talk to program staff about our grantmaking, and request capacity building assistance!

Opioid Crisis - Fighting for Our Lives and Our Communities

September 9, 11:30-1:30
In this plenary, experts in America’s opioid epidemic and its intersections with HIV, STDs, and hepatitis will provide insight into the current landscape of the opioid crisis and offer tools for fighting it collectively and at home.

Additionally, many AIDS United staff, grantees, and partners will share successes, strategies, and stories about their work throughout the conference. Presentations will span many topics—from transgender leadership, to addressing the needs of the US South, to the future of the Ryan White Program—and are sure to provide something for everyone. See a list of their presentations below. See the full USCA agenda here.
