2023 USCHA

The 2023 United States Conference on HIV/AIDS (USCHA) will take place September 6 – 9 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC.  This year’s theme is “A Love Letter to Black Women”. Like our focus on Puerto Rico and Latinx populations last year, we will lean into this theme while we celebrate and honor Black women (cis and trans). We will highlight Black women across our movements, from activists to women living with HIV, national advocates, community voices, federal leaders, health department staff, healthcare workers, researchers and women-focused organizations. The Opening Plenary will tell their stories and acknowledge their contributions. Their experiences will be highlighted in workshops, institutes, posters, and special events. We will also have a section of the exhibit hall for small businesses owned and operated by Black women.  Much more is being planned.  Stay tuned for conference updates and opportunities for registrants to participate.

USCHA’s attendance is highest when we convene in DC.  We’re expecting almost 4,000 people this year. Attending USCHA is a great opportunity to meet with federal leaders and make your voices heard on The Hill. Make sure to register and reserve an exhibit booth in time to take advantage of early bird rates.  The early bird deadline is June 19.

The conference will feature over 120 institutes, workshops and posters addressing issues in biomedical HIV prevention, aging, service delivery and telehealth, stigma, and the next steps in Ending the Epidemic. This year we’ve added a track on Black women and HIV to ensure focused representation in the agenda.  Visit the Abstracts tab to learn more.  The submission deadline is April 21, 2023.

USCHA continues its commitment to offer several scholarship opportunities to support attendance. In addition to our general scholarships, we have programmatic scholarships for youth, people living with HIV age 50 and older, long-term survivors, and social media fellows. Make sure to apply by June 5, 2023.

Now in its 27th year, USCHA remains the conference to attend to experience the widest range of HIV-related topics, the most diverse attendees, the best exhibit hall and most unique plenary sessions.  We look forward to seeing you in DC.
