TO SEE AND BE SEEN

Sheraton Four Points, 1201 K Street N.W. Washington, District of Columbia, 20005, USA

The International Indigenous Working Group on HIV & AIDS (IIWGHA) is pleased to announce the International Indigenous Pre-conference on HIV & AIDS, TO SEE AND BE SEEN, which will precede the International AIDS Conference also held in Washington from July 22 to 27, 2012.

The Pre-conference is to be held on July 20 and 21, 2012 at the Sheraton Four Points, 1201 K Street N.W in Washington, DC. The overall goal of the Pre-conference is to increase the visibility of HIV & AIDS in Indigenous communities. HIV & AIDS is disproportionately distributed across global populations, as it hits hardest in areas where structural, economic, and development challenges are greatest and it is especially evident within the Indigenous populations.

The International Indigenous Pre-conference on HIV & AIDS is an innovative knowledge exchange forum where Indigenous service providers, researchers, policy makers, community leaders and Indigenous People living with HIV & AIDS come together to share and learn. Unique and culturally appropriate wise-practices in HIV & AIDS will be explored with the aim to increase the visibility of HIV & AIDS in Indigenous communities.
