8:30 am – 10:00 amOpening Plenary: The Science Tapestry, Part 1: The Who, What, Where, and How of HIV Research

HIV research has a direct impact on the lives of people with and vulnerable to HIV. While lifelong ART has saved the lives of many and continues to do so, biomedical HIV prevention research continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of the HIV community. Research is underway and planned to offer several promising drugs, technologies, and delivery methods that, if proven effective, will advance our goal to end the HIV epidemic. This plenary will provide an overview of the interwoven tapestry of the Who, What, Where, and How of HIV research. Join us to understand better the NIH HIV research program, the current state of HIV science, the progress made to date, and the impact of strategies to prevent, treat, and cure HIV.

8:30 am – 10:00 amMorning Plenary: Native Holistic Innovation and Best Practices and the 2024 PrEPpy Awards

HIV-treatment is more than physical prescribed “meds”. Native cultures have traditionally approached illnesses holistically that supports the mind, body, spirit, and larger family connections to assist the patient in their healing process. This plenary highlights efforts in urban and rural areas to share and encourage other health organizations to view HIV treatment more than western medicine approaches but views the patient as a person and true individual in the larger community of family. Native communities’ unique environments challenges traditional western-based treatment. Rural and urban Alaskan environments and larger urban areas present challenges to the holistic approach of healing. These presenters will share their efforts to build connections across all facets of Native-based healing.

CDC and HRSA are vital federal agencies in the federal government's HIV research continuum. From research to communities, policies, budgets, programs, and the promise of biomedical HIV prevention, these two agencies play a role in implementing research findings on HIV prevention, treatment, and care. This plenary will discuss the role of these agencies in ensuring the implementation of evidence-based care and prevention interventions.
