2020 USCHA

The United States Conference on AIDS (USCA) is now the United States Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA). The conference name change reflects the importance of eliminating stigmatizing language and accurately reflecting the current state of the epidemic.

We’re excited to announce that the 2020 United States Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA) will take place in San Juan, PR on October 10 – 13 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center. USCHA is being held in Puerto Rico to:

  • bring much needed economic development to the island after Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquakes,
  • focus on the impact of HIV in the Latinx community
  • give attendees the experience of being in a locale where English is not the only language.

This year’s theme is Luchando Por Nuestras Vidas (Fighting for Our Lives).  Most of the conference program will be in English.  However, we will have a Spanish-language track and the Opening Plenary will be mostly in Spanish as well (real-time Spanish to English translation will be provided.)

We will continue our focus on the domestic plan to end the HIV and STI epidemics.  It will be an opportunity for health departments, community-based organizations, People Living with HIV, People on PrEP, national organizations, health centers, health care providers, donors, activists, and federal leaders to come together to discuss implementation. We hope you will join us and thousands of your colleagues to celebrate the resiliency and diversity of our movement.

Make sure to visit the navigation tabs for information on how to register, reserve an exhibit booth, apply for a scholarship, sponsor the conference and submit an abstract. The scholarship application will be available on March 3. Attending USCHA is the best way to gain the skills needed to ensure measurable and positive results as well as convene with decision makers.

Now more than ever, it is important that we convene together in solidarity to face the challenges that confront us and continue our important work to end this epidemic.
