About

The National Latinx Conference on HIV/HCV/SUD aims to create opportunities to share information and efforts around health disparities that negatively impact the Latinx population such as Human immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis C (HCV) and Substance Use Disorder (SUD), by bridging the varied disciplines of education, advocacy, and clinical care. Thus, creating better health outcomes for the Latinx population. 


Objectives

  • Increase knowledge, communication skills and respectful attitudes towards the Latinx community and those living with HIV, HCV, or SUD.
  • Increase awareness of the cultural and social barriers faced by the Latinx population in seeking/receiving treatment, care, and prevention services for HIV, HCV and SUD.
  • Increase understanding of the disproportionate impact that HIV, HCV and SUD has among Latinx communities.
  • Increase ability to develop culturally tailored medical practices and interventions that support Latinx patients in achieving a better understanding of their health and their care.
  • Increase capacity of organizations to provide services that are both health equitable and health literate.
