30 years of 
Innovating Care, Optimizing Public Health, Ending the HIV Epidemic

2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment

August 11-14, 2020

The 2020 CLINICAL CONFERENCE, just prior to the National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment

August 9 -12, 2020

In light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care and Treatment (NRWC) is officially going virtual!  The conference dates will remain August 11-14, 2020, but the times will be adjusted to accommodate different time zones.  Registered participants are still encouraged to attend the full length of the conference, however the virtual platform would allow for more flexibility.

We know many of the registered attendees and speakers are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response around the world.  This virtual format will allow those on the front line to still have an opportunity to attend the conference and not take them away from the communities they are working hard to serve.

Please note, all Marriott Marquis Washington, DC hotel reservations will be cancelled on behalf of registered attendees.  There is no need to contact the hotel to request a reservation cancellation.

 

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS

2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau, I look forward to your participation at the 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment on August 11-14, 2020.  In light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, we have made arrangement to host this year’s conference virtually.  The health, well-being, and safety of all of our attendees is our top priority. While there is not yet sufficient data on whether people with HIV are more susceptible or more likely to develop severe disease, we must take every precaution to reduce any potential risk to the vulnerable population the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program serves.

The National Conference theme this year is “30 Years of Innovating Care, Optimizing Public Health, Ending the HIV Epidemic,” which is timely as HRSA celebrates 30 years since the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act was first enacted.   This year’s theme also aligns with the Administration’s Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America, the 10-year initiative with the important goal of reducing new HIV infections to less than 3,000 per year by 2030.

HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau hosts the National Conference every two years to deliver program and policy updates, share innovative models of care, and provide training and technical assistance to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients; federal, national, state, and local  stakeholders; health care and service delivery providers; and people with HIV.  This biennial event provides a forum to share best practice models and strategies that will help attendees facilitate a coordinated national response designed to reduce new HIV infections and HIV-related health disparities.

I am especially looking forward to the National Conference this year because we will have the opportunity to highlight the incredible work the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, including all of our recipients and partners, has accomplished over the past 30 years to pave the way to end the HIV epidemic.  I think back to the 1990s when I was a young clinician working in San Francisco, and I hoped there would come a time when this horrible epidemic in this country would end.  That time is now!  With the incredible advancements in HIV treatment and prevention in recent years, we now have the tools that we need to end the HIV epidemic in America.

I hope your experience during the virtual 2020 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment will be just as rewarding as it is when we are in person and that it will offer a time for reflection and celebration as well as a productive exchange of valuable knowledge and information.  Thank you for your commitment to providing high quality, comprehensive care and treatment to people with HIV and your efforts to end the HIV epidemic in the United States.

Sincerely,

Laura Cheever, M.D., Sc.M.
Associate Administrator, HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau
