August 15-17, 1988, CDC will cosponsor a national conference on the Prevention of HIV Infection and AIDS Among Racial and Ethnic Minorities in the United States, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, in Washington, D.C. The conference is sponsored in conjunction with the Office of Minority Health; the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration; the Health Resources and Services Administration; and the Indian Health Service. The Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, state and local health departments, and minority and voluntary organizations will also participate. The conference is targeted for persons involved in AIDS prevention activities; these include AIDS program managers, planners, administrators, community health educators, counselors, health-care providers, and program evaluators.

The conference objectives are to: Provide an overview of strategies for prevention and control of AIDS in racial and ethnic minority communities.

Present and discuss information on technical assistance; funding; networking; and program development, implementation, and evaluation.

Exchange information on model programs to prevent infection among people engaged in high-risk activities, such as intravenous drug use and unsafe sex.

Develop ideas for future direction of programs to prevent HIV infection and AIDS.

The objectives will be accomplished through a series of workshops that will focus on program development, technical assistance, and funding resources and coordination. Strategies for community outreach, health education and risk reduction, HIV antibody counseling and testing, and research and program evaluation will be emphasized.

A preconference program on the evening of Sunday, August 14, will provide an overview of recent developments in HIV infection and AIDS. During the conference, time also will be allotted for roundtable discussions, strategy and resource sharing, and group caucuses.
