Can We Really End the AIDS Epidemic by 2030?  A Policy Reality Check

The HIV/AIDS epidemic has received increased attention recently. The Trump administration has proposed an initiative to end the epidemic in the United States by 2030, and several stories related to current issues in the epidemic have made headlines. In this talk, Watkins-Hayes will analyze the possibilities for an “End the Epidemic” policy goal, drawing upon more than a decade of research with women living with HIV/AIDS as well as activists, advocates, policy officials, and service providers involved in HIV work. She will discuss the importance of the HIV/AIDS safety net in reaching the end of the HIV epidemic in the United States and will highlight the larger lessons that the HIV safety net offers for confronting inequality.
