The Time is Now! Ending the HIV Epidemic 2021 Conference” 

 

The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County (DOH-MD) recognizes “Ending the HIV Epidemic” (EHE), a national initiative that supports areas across the U.S which face high rates of new HIV cases. Miami-Dade County has one of the highest rates of HIV in the country. This initiative is led locally by the DOH-MD and the Miami-Dade County Ryan White Part A Program (MDC-RWP), which will help to significantly reduce HIV rates across the county. The goal of EHE is to reduce new HIV cases by 75% in 5 years, and by 90% in 10 years. 

The DOH-MD STD/HIV Prevention and Control Program and the MDC-RWP in partnership with the Office of Community Health and Planning, will host the EHE virtual conference on February 18th and 19th

The two-day virtual conference will highlight new approaches, best practices, research, intersecting issues regarding HIV care and prevention, social determinants of health, and additional topics on the four pillars of the EHE initiative (diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond). The DOH-MD and the MDC-RWP invite people with HIV, primary care professionals, specialty care providers, nurses, case managers, peer educators, patient advocates, and all community members to participate.
