The 2017 National Latino HIV/Hepatitis C Conference

Vision:

The 2017 National Latino HIV and Hepatitis C Conference aims to create opportunities to share information and efforts around HIV and Hepatitis C in the Latino population by bridging the varied disciplines of education, advocacy, and clinical care, among others.

The conference goals are to:

  1. Increase knowledge, communication skills and respectful attitudes towards Latinos living with HIV and/or Hepatitis C.
  2. Increase awareness of the cultural and social barriers faced by Latinos in seeking/receiving treatment, care, and prevention services for HIV and Hepatitis C.
  3. Increase understanding of the disproportionate impact HIV and Hepatitis C infection rates have among Latino communities.
  4. Increase ability to develop culturally tailored medical practices and interventions that support Latino patients in achieving viral suppression.
  5. Increase capacity of organizations to provide services that are both health equitable and health literate.
