The State of New Media and HIV

Susannah Fox will present at the AIDS.gov satellite session “The State of New Media and HIV” during the International AIDS Conference in Washington, DC.

The session aims to encourage a conversation within the HIV/AIDS community to:

  • Assess the role new media can play in HIV prevention, testing, and treatment (in partnership with clients and stakeholders) to extend the reach of their work; and,
  • Use new media and emerging technologies, as appropriate, to move toward an AIDS-free generation.

Fox will contribute the Pew Internet Project’s latest data on social media use in the U.S.
