International AIDS Conference HUB at NYU Looks To Reach AIDS Free Generation For Hispanic/Latinos
International AIDS Conference HUB at NYU Looks To Reach AIDS Free Generation For Hispanic/Latinos

New York, New York, January 23, 2012. Today, the Center for Latino Adolescent and Family Health (CLAFH) at NYU’s Silver School of Social Work and the Latino Commission on AIDS hosted “Turning the Tide Together for U.S. Hispanics: Rebuilding Our HIV Prevention Toolbox” at New York University. This event, stemming from the 2012 International AIDS Conference, featured an informative dialogue among researchers, physicians, and public health officials from the New York Metro area on what needs to be done to turn the tide in the HIV & AIDS epidemic for Latinos in New York City, nationally, and around the world.

“Latinos remain disproportionately affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and warrant greater attention with regard to prevention and treatment,” commented Professor Vincent Guilamo-Ramos of NYU’s Silver School of Social Work. “We have the specific strategies to make a difference, but large challenges remain in linking Latino communities to these tools.”

“Now more than ever it is crucial that we bring together diverse partners for conversations like these. The International AIDS Conference provided us with new momentum to reach an AIDS free generation, including among racial and sexual minorities,” said Guillermo Chacón, president of the Latino Commission on AIDS
