Innovative Use of Technology for HIV Prevention and Care: Evidence, Challenges, and the Way Forward

On January 23, 2014, UCLA CHIPTS hosted a one-day conference on the innovative use of technology for HIV prevention and care at the California Endowment in Los Angeles. This event was a collaborative activity of the Combination Prevention Core, Policy Core, and Development Core of CHIPTS. The conference was made possible by funds from the National Institute of Mental Health (MH058107) and additional support from the UCLA AIDS Institute, UCLA Center for AIDS Research, UCLA Center for Behavioral and Addiction Medicine, UCLA Interdisciplinary and Cross Campus Affairs, and Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson.

The purpose of the conference was to bring together researchers, representatives of technology development companies, public policymakers, HIV service providers, and members of the HIV/AIDS community to share cutting-edge research and real-world application of social media, web-based, and mobile technologies for HIV prevention and care.
