The mission of the 2012 National Summit is to support improvement in viral hepatitis and HIV testing, prevention, and engagement in care in the United States. The nation’s public health scientific and community leadership will meet to discuss state-of-the-art mechanisms to support the President’s “National HIV/AIDS Strategy” (NHAS) and the HHS “Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis” (VHAP).
Our goal is to assemble new and relevant information about the implementation of routine or expanded testing activities furthering prevention and access, linkage and retention in care in the U.S.
Abstracts should enhance sharing of information and experiences in different settings, encourage collaboration, and support the scale-up of services. We welcome original abstracts as well as abstracts presented within the past year.
All accepted abstracts will be published in the Forum’s online journal, Annals of the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research, and presented as posters. A select number of abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations. Priority registration will be available to accepted abstract presenters.
We solicit abstracts in the areas of viral hepatitis and HIV, fitting one of the following four categories.
A. Routine and Expanded Testing
B. Prevention Models
C. Outcomes and Impact Evaluation
D. Access, Linkage and Retention in Care
