Once a year, Reunion Latina provides us with the opportunity to bring all of our experiences together in one powerful forum, in order to influence legislators, social and civic leaders. Institute attendees, including service providers, media representatives, elected officials, community leaders and their partners, experts in the field, and people living with HIV/AIDS participate in workshops and panels that highlight critical issues and promising solutions pertinent to those who are working to break the cycle of indifference and stigma in some of our nation’s most affected communities.
This year, topic areas will include: NYS Plan to End the AIDS Epidemic by 2020, Latino Diversity and Healthcare Needs, Health Disparities, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), Latino YMSM, and Hepatitis C, among others.
The following are process objectives for Reunion Latina:
Strategize how to best meet the unique and diverse needs of Latino/Hispanic communities in a rapidly changing HIV/AIDS crisis;
Provide evidence based HIV prevention strategies through the HIV Behavioral track;
