The theme Building A Movement refers to looking at HIV/AIDS in the context of scientific and social movements, as well as the larger movement for global health equity. The conference will explore how FACE AIDS fits into this broader movement and how students can contribute and be active change-makers. The conference will feature both inspirational keynote addresses and chapter development workshops to illuminate the importance of social movements and the role youth play in social movements. The conference will give attendees the chance to build skills to become more effective members of the global movement for health equity.
