Annual Family and HIV/AIDS Meeting


Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico

NIMH and the University of Puerto Rico cosponsored the Annual International Research Conference on the Role of Families in Preventing and Adapting to HIV/AIDS. The conference theme was "Resilient Families Overcoming Poverty, Violence, Mental Illness and HIV/AIDS." The first day of this conference was a "Community Day," designed to engage service providers by conducting skills-building workshops to improve their delivery of evidence-based family prevention programs. The meeting included scientific presentations on the latest family-based research, which may lead to new research collaborations.
