Conference Archives 2011

The Coalition for Elimination of AIDS-related Stigma (CEAS) believes it’s time to have an honest conversation about the attitude that spreads HIV/AIDS, Stigma. HIV/AIDS has come a long way in the last 25 years, with lots of medication to treat the virus, research for cures, thousands of education and condom distribution programs and a generational awareness. However, the disease keeps spreading globally. It is our belief that we need to include stigma into every conversation, prevention method and research about HIV/AIDS. To that end, CEAS has invited scholars, community and government leaders and stakeholders to this unique conference happening on December 1st, 2010 in Washington, D.C. It is time to have a different conversation about HIV/AIDS.
