The Pacific AIDS Education & Training Center – Orange County & Inland Empire (PAETC – OCIE) housed in the University of California, Irvine, Division of Infectious Diseases will present the 34th Annual HIV/AIDS on the Front Line Conference on September 22, 2021. PAETC – OCIE is dedicated to enhancing providers’ knowledge, skills, and capacity to ultimately improve the quality of life for individuals living with HIV and preventing HIV for those at risk.
The HIV/AIDS on the Front Line Conference is the premier regional conference serving Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and Los Angeles County. This conference is the nation’s oldest annual conference focusing on HIV. This conference provides state-of-the-art information to enhance the care of individuals living with HIV and is usually held in-person at the University of California, Irvine campus.
With the continuing global pandemic, we will be holding the conference virtually this year with multiple sessions. The faculty will be comprised of national, regional, and local experts. Topics that are critical in HIV diagnosis, management, and prevention will be presented. The content will include Antiviral Therapy, HIV Prevention, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Health Disparities and Barriers to Care, Mental Health and Substance Use.
The planning committee consists of the PAETC – OCIE faculty, Orange County Health Care Agency HIV leadership, and HIV Community Based Organizations. The committee membership represents different disciplines and diversity that reflect the attendees.
Attendees include HIV physicians, nurses, mid-level providers, case managers, outreach staff, testing counselors, laboratorians, mental health workers, and prevention specialists as well as primary care providers and other health professionals interested in learning the latest on HIV. Attendees generally come from the four neighboring counties (Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles). With the accessibility of a virtual conference, we expect attendance from a wider region.
