Annual HIV/AIDS Conference Draws Practitioners, Scientists from Across New England

The New England HIV Implementation Science Network's third annual symposium had a clear message that was cited throughout the day: 90-90-90. Getting to zero.

The numbers refer to the UNAIDS goals that 90 percent of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status; 90 percent will receive antiretroviral therapy; and 90 percent of those who receive the therapy will have viral suppression. If the goals are achieved, many believe that the AIDS epidemic could be conquered by 2030.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale and the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), Thursday's symposium (June 2) drew nearly 125 researchers, practitioners, community organizations and public health agencies from throughout New England who are involved with HIV prevention and treatment.
