Background:

The 2012 National Summit on HIV and Viral Hepatitis Diagnosis, Prevention, and Access to Care (November 26-28, 2012, Washington, DC) is sponsored by the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research in partnership with the American Academy of HIV Medicine, amfAR, the American Academy of Nursing, the Hepatitis B Project, the Hepatitis Education Project, the HIV Medicine Association, Kaiser Permanente, the National Association of Community Health Centers, the NIH-NIAID Division of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, the National Black Gay Men's Advocacy Coalition, the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable, and the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy (HHS).   

The mission of the 2012 Summit is to support improvement in HIV and viral hepatitis testing, prevention, and linkage to care in the United States. The nation’s public health scientific and advocacy leadership will meet to discuss state-of-the-art mechanisms to support the “National HIV/AIDS Strategy” and the HHS “Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis.”

The program is being developed under the leadership of the co-chairs Dr. John G. Bartlett (Johns Hopkins University), Dr. Kenneth H. Mayer (The Fenway Institute), and Dr. Veronica Miller (the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research), the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Advisory Committee representing governmental agencies, professional societies, academia, clinical care, community and advocacy organizations, and industry. The program will consist of plenary sessions and breakout sessions in the areas of Routine and Expanded Testing, Prevention Models, Outcomes and Impact Evaluation, and Access, Linkage and Retention in Care.
 

Objectives:

Goals and Objectives of the 2012 Summit are:

  • To address and support the continued implementation of recommendations for increased HIV and viral hepatitis testing.
  • To further identify strategies for reducing new HIV and viral hepatitis infections, increase access to care and treatment, reduce related health disparities and reduce the public health burden of HIV and viral hepatitis.
  • To strengthen viral hepatitis surveillance, increase awareness and coverage of vaccine-preventable viral hepatitis.
  • To assess the current impact of differing recommendations to implement routine HIV and viral hepatitis testing on policy, program and practice at the local, state and federal level.
