The TX/OK AIDS Education & Training Center (TX/OK AETC) is proud to announce the 2013 "Women & HIV International Clinical Conference", a two-day face-to-face event hosted at the Magnolia Hotel May 3rd and 4th in Dallas, Texas. The goal of this conference is to “Empower clinicians to provide timely care to women living with or at risk of contracting HIV”.

 

 Overview

HIV disproportionally affects women, especially those who live in poverty and under unstable housing conditions.

• 25% of adults and adolescents aged 13 years or older living with a diagnosis of HIV in the United States are women (1)
• In 2011, an estimated 10,257 women aged 13 years or older were diagnosed HIV positive (2)
• Women accounted for 25% (7,949) of the estimated 32,052 AIDS diagnoses in 2011 (2)
• In 2010, an estimated 217 children younger than the age of 13 years were diagnosed with HIV and 162 (75%) of those children were prenatally infected (1)
• From the beginning of the epidemic through 2009, an estimated 5,626 people who were diagnosed with AIDS were younger than 13 years died in the 50 stated and District of Colombia. Of the total 4,986 (89%) of them were infected perinatally (1)

According to UNAIDS, violence against women is both a cause and a consequence of HIV/AIDS. The Office on Women’s’ Health also notes that women living with HIV may be at risk of violence when disclosing their HIV status to their partner.

The Texas/Oklahoma AIDS Education & Training Center (TX/OK AETC) in conjunction with other State and National agencies are working hard to provide health care providers treating women living with or at risk of contracting HIV with up to date medical updates. The 2013 Women & HIV International Clinical Conference will provide health care providers with information and tools to provide timely care to women living with or at risk of contracting HIV.
