The entire conference experience is intentionally crafted to raise awareness on the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS transmission on Women and Girls and their intimate partners with holistic various health, economic, educational and behavioral health disparities in our African American/Minority communities. Since the inception of the conference in November of 2004, the conference has grown from 700 registrants to more than 2200 women annually, making it the largest free women’s HIV conference on the East Coast.  Each year registration and attendance has increased, reflecting the demonstrated importance of its continuation.
