The National Conference on Social Work and HIV/AIDS (NCSWH), founded in 1988, is an annual event that draws more than 500 leaders, social workers, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, federal partners, researchers, professors, and students from across the country and nations abroad. The field of HIV/AIDS has dramatically changed from the death sentence it was in the early 1990s. Today, individuals living with HIV can enjoy productive lives and thrive!
Hosted through a partnership between the Professional Association of Social Workers in HIV/AIDS (PASWHA) and Collaborative Solutions, this year's theme, "Social Work: Leadership. Change. Hope." will focus on the role social workers as leaders for social change, ending HIV/AIDS, best practices, prevention, research, and giving a voice to the profession; while empowering those we serve to be heard.
We can see an end to the HIV epidemic in this generation!
Social Work: Leadership. Change. Hope.
