Event Description


The 36th National Conference On Social Work And HIV/AIDS  


STANDARD REGISTRATION 
 

 

The National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS, founded in 1988, is an annual event that offers social workers, allied professionals, and people affected by HIV and AIDS the connections, tools, learning opportunities, and strategies they need to understand and implement effective practices in their agencies and communities. Our goals for attendees of the 36th National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS (NCSWH) are to gain knowledge, be challenged, and be renewed.

The 2024 conference will be held May 22-25, 2024, at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney.  Our reason for choosing Florida is simple: To end HIV & AIDS, we must show up with courage and be prepared to support the marginalized communities facing this injustice. Social Workers have an ethical obligation to advocate for those affected by the current social climate in Florida. 

The 2024 theme is " Our Fight for Justice and Equity to End HIV and AIDS." Social workers know that HIV and AIDS are not merely health issues but are often a result of poverty, racism, homophobia, and stigma. We will not see an end to the HIV and AIDS epidemic without addressing the systems and policies that perpetuate social injustice and continue to contribute to health inequities
