The 33rd National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS Medical Case Management

  • Registration Closed

Welcome to the 33rd National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS Medical Case Management!

The National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS, founded in 1988, is an annual event that offers social workers, allied professionals, and people affected by HIV and AIDS, the connections, tools, learning opportunities, and strategies they need to understand and implement effective practices in their agencies and communities. Our goals for attendees of the 33rd National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS are to gain knowledge, be challenged, and be renewed.

The theme for the 2021 conference is Rise Up HIV & AIDS Social Work(ers)! Social workers know that HIV and AIDS is not merely a health issue but often a result of poverty, racism, homophobia, and stigma. We will not see an end to the HIV and AIDS epidemic without addressing the systems and policies that perpetuate social injustice and continue to contribute to health inequities.
