4043.0 Gender, Sexual Health, & HIV/AIDS

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 8:30 AM
As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to HIV testing, prevention, and treatment in order to improved future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to the role of gender in sexual health and HIV/AIDS. The section identified this area as a priority, as gender differences continue to be identified as areas of disparities in HIV testing, engaging in care, and prevention efforts. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to identifying and understanding the role gender plays in sexual health and how to address it in HIV prevention.
