The 2023 Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit is coming to Las Vegas, April 11 – 12. Now in it’s seventh year, the Summit’s continuing focus has been on the implementation of biomedical tools in our prevention and treatment efforts to ultimately end the HIV epidemic in communities. To make real impacts, it’s important to learn about and from different communities. This year’s Summit will lean into sex and pleasure. Since sex is the main way that HIV is transmitted, we need to focus on consensual sex in all of its iterations. We’ll talk about kink, fetishes, sex work, etc. in an open, honest, and frank way. After all, if we can’t talk about sex, how can we talk about HIV prevention?
The Summit will feature sessions on the need for a National PrEP program, community participation in research, sex positivity, insurance for PrEP and other topics. Make sure to visit the Abstracts tab for the full listing of tracks and track descriptions. The abstract submission deadline is February 6. Stay tuned for information about the general abstract webinar on January 19.
We’re expecting over 1,400 people to join us this year. Summit attendees include leaders, advocates, and educators all interested in sharing ideas and learning about new approaches to maximize the use of biomedical HIV prevention methods. Make sure you’re there to exhibit or provide support as a sponsor to engage with these groups. Visit the Exhibits and Sponsors tabs to get more information and reserve a spot.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” This time, we want what happens in Vegas to influence HIV prevention all over the country.
