THE TIME IS NOW

2022 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 2022 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment on August 23-26, 2022.  The National Conference theme this year is “The Time Is Now: Harnessing the Power of Innovation, Health Equity, and Community to End the HIV Epidemic.”  

As the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program enters its fourth decade, we know that now is the time to come together as a community to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. HRSA continues to move forward with the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S., the 10-year initiative with the goal to reduce new HIV infections by 90 percent by 2030. To get there, HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program understands we must continue to promote health equity to reduce HIV-related health disparities; be innovative in how we deliver HIV care and treatment, support people with HIV; and ensure people with HIV and their communities are involved in the planning, development, and implementation of HIV care and treatment strategies.

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 practices and innovative strategies that will help participants to continue to facilitate a coordinated national response 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 of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, including all of our recipients and partners. I hope your participation in the 2022 National Ryan White Conference on HIV Care & Treatment will be rewarding and will offer a time for reflection of the past two years and an opportunity to highlight our collective resiliency as well as provide 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
