Speakers will discuss the latest scientific and medical advances aimed at combating and containing the disease; explore the barriers faced by policymakers and advocates who are calling for more HIV/AIDS research, funding and outreach; and take a deep-dive into the HIV/AIDS epidemic sweeping America’s Southern states.
