Familias en Acción is proud to present our 12th annual Latino Health Equity Conference, “Me cuido, te cuido”. “Me cuido, te cuido”, prioritizes one's health, the health of your partners, and that of the community. This perspective cultivates and promotes values of mutual respect, acceptance, equality and empathy. This year's virtual conference aims to broaden our knowledge and awareness on sexual health, sexuality, and HIV by leveraging the experiences of the Latino community. We will highlight community-driven initiatives that prevent new HIV infections, support Latinos living with HIV, and work towards ending cultural stigmas that impact Latino health.
