The Indiana University National HIV Conference (IUNHC), Stepping Into the 5th Decade – Evolving Our Response to HIV, will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 8-11, 2022, and is presented by Indiana University's Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs. Marking one of the first times a university has led a national HIV conference. This four-day conference focuses on ending the epidemic and uniting higher education, nonprofit, biomedical research, health departments, health professionals, pharmaceutical companies, key constituents, and consumers engaged in HIV/AIDS prevention, research, and care in conversation and knowledge sharing.
With the larger and more geographically dispersed population living with HIV/AIDS to the south of Indiana and IU's nationally ranked medical school and its Rural Center for AIDS/STD prevention, Indiana University is pleased to host a national conference, creating a platform for all sectors of society to come together and respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.James C.
