Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit
The fifth annual Biomedical HIV Prevention Summit, organized by NMAC, will be held as a virtual event from March 30–31, 2021. The two-day conference will present information and insights about biomedical prevention tools such as PrEP, PEP, Treatment as Prevention (TasP), and U=U and their role in Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE). The Summit will create a space for leaders of various target communities and staff charged with implementing EHE programs to meet and dialogue.
Over two days, over forty workshop sessions, four plenary sessions, several community corners, an exhibit hall as well as on-line networking opportunities via lounges.
“Abstract submission is now open on the Summit website, along with registration,” said NMAC Director of Conferences Tara Barnes-Darby. “‘We want to have a wide variety of engaging and informative workshop topics for the Summit. We’re asking anyone who is interested to submit an abstract through the website by January 22, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. PST. We look forward to seeing the submissions.”
Presentation tracks include:
• Finance and access models

Scholarships are available and will prioritize PrEP navigators; and community-based organizations; and health departments establishing their PrEP programs. Other criteria include geographic diversity, emphasizing populations and regions where HIV disproportionately impacts people of color. Scholarship applications must be submitted by 8:00 p.m. EST on February 5, 2021.
