Event Overview
Welcome message:

The 2017 United States Conference on AIDS (USCA) will be held September 7 - 10 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Washington, DC.  USCA's return to DC is important as we navigate expected changes in the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid expansion and service delivery.  


Make sure that you register for USCA to hear from federal officials about various agency implementation plans.  Now more than ever, it is important that we convene with all stakeholders to make sure that our progress in dealing with the HIV epidemic remains at the forefront.

In addition to the skills-building offered through abstract submissions, late-breaker sessions will be offered to make sure that they reflect the most current domestic issues as we approach the conference.  See the various navigation tabs for information on how to register, submit an abstract, reserve and exhibit booth, sponsor the conference as well as apply for a scholarship. Attending USCA is the best way to gain the skills needed to ensure measurable and positive results as well as convene with decision makers.

This year’s Opening Plenary is on Thursday, September 7th.  It is a tribute to our families.  While there are many details still to be determined, we are pleased to announce that Dr. David Williams from Harvard University will speak to us about his ground-breaking research on race and its impact on health.  David is an old friend to NMAC.  This is his 3rd USCA, but first plenary speech. 

On Saturday, September 9th, our Federal Plenary will welcome back our family heroes, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Jonathan Mermin.  Dr. Fauci is the Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), he’s been there since the beginning.  In many ways, Tony is the oracle for our movement.  He will

update us on the current work to end the epidemic and help us understand the latest scientific advances and what that means to leaders working on the frontlines. Dr. Mermin is the Director of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP).  Like Tony, Jono is a long term friend of the community and a leader in the battle to end HIV.  Jono will speak to us about the Future of HIV Prevention as well as the strategies meant to end the epidemic. Joining Tony and Jono is Dr. Laura Cheever. Laura is the associate administrator and chief medical officer for the HIV/AIDS Bureau of HRSA and will speak about the future and importance of the Ryan White Care Act.

Our closing plenary will be a tribute to this year’s Women’s March.  Carmen Perez is a national co-chair for the Women’s March.  She will talk about the importance of speaking truth to power and remind us that we have the power and the voice that can change the world.

There are still many slots to be filled, but we wanted to give you a taste of what to expect this year.  Life is about

choices and we hope you will choose to be with your movement in September. After all, this is a Family Reunion and right now we need everyone in the family to show up and show out.  You don’t have to be alone, you don’t have to feel hopeless.  You are part of a family that is fighting to end an epidemic.  It’s a family affair.
