The Reunion Project at USCHA

A round up of our activities at the United States Conference on HIV/AIDS.

The Reunion Project was in full force at this year’s United States Conference on HIV/AIDS in Washington, DC, September 5–9. The theme of this year’s conference, which is sponsored by NMAC, was “A Love Letter to Black Women.” Our workshop on “Long-Term Survivors and HIV Cure Research—A Community Perspective,” featured four, powerful Black women, and was jam-packed with a lively and robust conversation. You can view the panel discussion and the slides from the workshop. We explored some of the issues around HIV cure and long-term survivors, what we need to consider as cure research moves forward, and heard from the audience their questions and concerns. Our activities at the 50+ Long-Term Survivors lounge included activities that uplifted Black women and other long-term survivors.

We were excited to meet so many amazing people at our booth during the conference. Be sure to check out our Instagram page where you’ll see many of the people who stopped by to say hello, and shared with us what HIV and aging means to them.

The Reunion Project was a sponsor along with other community partners of “Voices of Experience: Listening to Older PLWH & LTS,” the HIV and aging listening session at this year’s conference. This was another packed event where people shared their experiences and answered questions to help us create an HIV and aging policy agenda. Keep your eye out for an upcoming webinar and report soon which will summarize the results of this important listening session.

Last but not least, TRP was proud to support the Lifetime Survivors’ activities at this year’s conference, and we definitely appreciated the call-out during the powerful opening plenary which featured the Lifetime Survivors who attended the conference. Thank you!
