TA Meeting Banner


NASTAD’s 2022 National HIV & Hepatitis Technical Assistance Meeting allowed ADAP coordinators, Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B coordinators, prevention managers, and hepatitis coordinators from states and CDC directly-funded jurisdictions to participate in various conversations about HIV and hepatitis policy, clinical developments, and innovative programming. The theme was “Responding to Shifting Public Health Challenges,” and focused on health department efforts to address a confluence of challenges including COVID-19, MPV, reproductive health, and the politicization of public health work. The meeting, which took place in-person and included a virtual participation option, was formatted to include plenary sessions, breakout discussion sessions and affinity sessions; more than 500 participants attended over the course of the three-day event.
