AIDS United at the National Harm Reduction Conference

Next week, November 2-6, the National Harm Reduction Conference will take place in San Diego, CA. The conference is the most widely attended harm reduction gathering in the nation, and the only conference of its kind in the United States.

Many AIDS United staff, grantees, and partners will share successes, strategies, and stories about their work throughout the conference. AIDS United will also be providing on-site technical assistance at our booth in the exhibit hall during the conference!
