Jim Pickett speaks at the Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference 2010

Today AFC Advocacy Director Jim Pickett gave a plenary presentation at the Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference 2010 in Sydney, Australia. His talk, “Yes, There is a Gay Agenda: The need to re-conceptualize HIV prevention in the epidemic’s third decade” was part of the session titled “Re-Thinking Prevention.”

Pickett discussed HIV prevention in the United States context and provided insights into the U.S. Gay Men’s Health Agenda, Chicago’s “How are you healthy?” campaign, the U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy, sexual health, and biomedical prevention. Click here to view his slide set.

Yesterday Pickett co-chaired a symposium called “Political, Cultural, and Logistic Realities of Microbicides for Australasia and the Pacific” and sat on a number of panels discussing STI prevention and gay men’s health.
