HIV Research Catalyst Forum Presentations NOW AVAILABLE

The HIV Research Catalyst Forum: Treatment, Prevention, Advocacy (Formerly North American Treatment Action Forum—NATAF) took place April 20 - 23, 2010 and  focused on community advocacy in HIV treatment and prevention research.

From identifying research priorities to overcoming research barriers, HIV advocates have driven ground-breaking discoveries that have changed the course of this relentless epidemic. But with no cure or preventive vaccines in sight, rising new infection rates, and the continuing death toll, our work is far from over.

The Catalyst Forum aimed to revitalize the community response to the domestic and global AIDS epidemic by amplifying the voices of community advocates in HIV treatment and prevention research.

The conference provided a rare opportunity for new advocates to gain knowledge, build capacity, and sharpen skills; for experienced advocates to exchange ideas, craft strategies, and tackle new challenges; and for advocacy networks to recruit new participants and collaborators to strengthen planned or ongoing research advocacy campaigns.

Symposium webcasts, power point slides from skills building workshops, are now online.
