On July 21, 2012, AAHIVM hosted a policy forum in conjunction with the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) in Washington, DC entitled, "What's Ahead for HIV Providers with the Affordable Care Act, Ryan White and Medicaid."
The Forum was designed to help HIV providers understand what lies ahead in the coming years, including the impact of the health reform law implementation and what HIV practitioners need to do to prepare for the coming changes. Government leaders and policy experts joined AAHIVM to discuss these important topics.
