2004 CAPS Conference: Broadening the HIV Prevention Landscape

CAPS 4th Annual HIV Prevention Conference April 16, 2004
the HIV Prevention Landscape

Cynthia Gomez

The Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS), in partnership with the National AIDS Fund (NAF) and the California STD/HIV Prevention Training Center (CA PTC), hosted the Fourth Annual CAPS Conference: Broadening the HIV Prevention Landscape. Our theme recognized that HIV prevention must be inclusive of both care and treatment. Traditional public funding must partner with private resources. HIV prevention scientists must collaborate with practitioners and policy makers. We must look beyond the traditional activities of HIV prevention if our work is to have the necessary impact to prevent new HIV infections.
